Ayodhya: Ram Lalla's idol 'Pran Pratishtha' was performed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in a grand ceremony in Uttar Pradesh. The historic event in the Ram Janmbhoomi city was attended by thousands of saints, artists, bollywood celebrities, members of the business fraternity, politicians among others. The temple will be opened for devotees from January 23 owards.

The idol of Ram Lalla placed in the sanctum sanctorum of the Ram Mandir has been crafted by renowned sculptor Arun Yogiraj from Mysuru. The idol sports divine ornaments and attire which is a vision of spirituality and tradition. 

The ornaments have been crafted by Shri Ankur Anand's institution, Harsahaimal Shiamlal Jewellers, Lucknow.

"Gracing his grand abode, Prabhu Shri Ram Lalla radiates in divine ornaments and attire, a vision of spirituality and tradition," said Shri Ram Janmbhoomi Teerth Trust. 

The creation of these divine ornaments is based on extensive research and study following the descriptions of Shri Ram's scripturally appropriate splendour in texts such as the Adhyatma Ramayana, Valmiki Ramayana, Ramcharitmanas, and Alavandar Stotra.

Following this research, and as per concept and direction of Shri Yatindra Mishra, these ornaments have been crafted by Shri Ankur Anand's institution, Harsahaimal Shiamlal Jewellers, Lucknow.

Shri Ram Lalla Virajman is adorned in Banarasi fabric, featuring a yellow dhoti and a red pataka/angavastram. These angavastrams are embellished with pure gold zari and threads, featuring auspicious Vaishnav symbols - Shankh, Padma, Chakra, and Mayur. These garments were created by Delhi's textile designer, Shri Manish Tripathi, who worked from Ayodhya Dham
