Ayodhya Ram Temple: A massive crowd gathered at Rampath to offer prayers to Ram Lalla today (January 24), two days after the 'pran pratishtha' ceremony of the deity. The visuals from outside the temple showed a huge number of devotees braving the cold weather to have the 'darshan' of Ram Lalla.

"The crowd is nonstop but preparations are complete. We appeal to the old and Divyang people to schedule their visit after two weeks. I want to appeal to the people that there's no need to hurry for Darshan. The temple will be opened for everyone with better preparations," IG Kumar told media.

Whether 50 thousand devotees come together or any other number, they won't have to wait, and all necessary facilities will be in place," the Director General of Police, Uttar Pradesh, added.

As per Uttar Pradesh's government officials, around five lakh devotees have so far offered prayers to Ram Lalla in Ayodhya's Ram Temple on Tuesday and a similar number of devotees are awaiting the darshan.
