The construction of the ground floor of the three-storey Ram Temple in Ayodhya is on track to be completed by the end of December, with the consecration (pran pratishtha) ceremony scheduled for January 22, according to Nripendra Mishra, the Chairperson of the Ram Temple Construction Committee.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi is expected to participate in an event related to the “pran pratishtha” between January 20 and 24, as confirmed by Mishra in an interview with PTI. The final date for Modi’s participation is yet to be communicated by the Prime Minister’s Office.

“It was planned to complete the construction of the ground floor of the temple by December 2023, and this work will definitely be completed within the stipulated time,” Mishra assured.

One of the most intriguing aspects of the temple project is the creation of an apparatus designed to be installed on the “shikhar” of the temple. This apparatus, currently under construction in Bengaluru under the supervision of scientists, will momentarily allow sun rays to fall on the forehead of the deity in the sanctum sanctorum on the auspicious day of Ram Navami each year.

The much-awaited Ram Temple is expected to be open to devotees on January 24 after the consecration of the Ram Lalla idol. Mishra had previously indicated this timeline back in June.

In 2019, the Supreme Court’s landmark judgement paved the way for the construction of the Ram Temple at the disputed site in Ayodhya.

The Sri Ram Janmabhoomi Teerth Kshetra Trust is preparing to formally invite Prime Minister Modi to the consecration ceremony, during which the idol of Ram Lalla will be installed in the sanctum sanctorum of the temple.

The process of consecrating Ram Lalla is likely to commence after Makar Sankranti on January 14, and it will involve a 10-day ritual of Ram Lalla’s “pran pratishtha.”

Mishra emphasized that the temple is being constructed with a vision of lasting for at least 1,000 years.
