Grand Ceremony Nears for Ram Temple Inauguration

As the grand ‘pran-pratishtha’ ceremony of the Ram Temple in Ayodhya approaches, preparations are in full swing for the highly anticipated event. The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) has even released stunning satellite pictures of the under-construction temple.

The satellite images, taken on 16 December and processed by ISRO’s National Remote Sensing Centre (NRSC), showcase the premises of the Ram Temple situated in the holy city of Ayodhya. These images provide valuable information for cartographic applications, urban and rural applications, and various other land information system applications.

In addition to the satellite pictures, the Shri Ram Janmabhoomi Teerth Kshetra Trust has shared exquisite photographs of the temple, showcasing the beautiful decorations with flowers and other natural adornments.

The highly-anticipated ceremony, set for 22 January, will be presided over by Prime Minister Narendra Modi. However, in preparation for the event, the Prime Minister is observing a strict 11-day ‘anushthan’ consisting of sleeping on the floor and consuming only coconut water.

The idol of Ram Lalla, which is 51 inches tall and made of black stone, has already been placed in the ‘Garbha Griha’ of the temple. According to Ram Temple Trust general secretary Champat Rai, the idol is attractively crafted in the form of a five-year-old child.

As the countdown continues, excitement builds for the monumental inauguration of the Ram Temple. The ceremony will mark a significant milestone in the history of Ayodhya and hold immense cultural, religious, and historical importance for the people of India.
