The construction of the sanctum sanctorum of Ram Temple in Uttar Pradesh’s Ayodhya is ready and Ram Lalla will be consecrated between January 16 and 24 next year, a top official of the temple trust said on Sunday (August 20).

The consecration of Ram Lalla will be carried out after the construction of the first floor of the temple, Ram Mandir Teerth Kshetra Trust general secretary Champat Rai said.

Rai met saints and seers in Uttarakhand’s Haridwar and informed them about the progress of the construction of temple.

The temple trust general secretary invited them to attend the 10-day Pran Pratishtha (consecration) ceremony of Ram Lalla in Ayodhya.

Rai said that the dream of crores of Ram devotees will soon be fulfilled after ‘years of controversy’.

“Ram Lalla is now going to be seated in his grand temple in Ayodhya. The idol of Ram Lalla will be consecrated in the sanctum sanctorum of the temple on any date between January 16 and 24, 2024 after Makar Sankranti,” he said.

He informed that 80 per cent work of the roof of the first floor of the two-storey temple has been completed, adding that the consecration of the temple will be carried out after the construction of the first floor.

Rai said that construction activities will continue amid devotees' ‘darshan’ at the temple, and assured that this will not cause any hindrance in the ongoing activity.

“Currently saints and seers are being invited verbally, and added that formal invitations will be sent out in November, he said.

Rai said that the seers of all traditions of the country would be invited for the Pran Pratishtha ceremony.

President of Akhil Bhartiya Akhara Parishad Mahant Ravindra Puri said that all saints, seers and devotees of Lord Ram should attend the consecration ceremony.

Puri said he hoped that Narendra Modi would emerge victorious in the upcoming 2024 Lok Sabha polls, and become the Prime Minister again so that "India could continue on its path of development".
