Ram Lalla Virajman at Shri Ram Janmaboomi Temple in Ayodhya | First visuals
The consecration of the new Ram Lalla idol took place on Monday at the recently built temple, accompanied by extensive festivities in the town. Prime Minister Narendra Modi actively participated in the ceremonial proceedings.
Entering the temple premises, the prime minister carried a silver ‘chattar’ (umbrella) placed on a red folded dupatta. Adorned in a golden kurta paired with a cream dhoti and patka, he performed the ‘sankalp’ during the “pran pratishtha ceremony” and subsequently proceeded to the sanctum sanctorum for the rituals.
RSS Chief Mohan Bhagwat, Uttar Pradesh Governor Anandiben Patel and Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath were also present inside the sanctorum during the rituals.
Army helicopters showered flower petals on the temple premises when the consecration took place.
“The extraordinary moment of the consecration of Shri Ram Lala’s life in Ayodhya Dham is going to leave everyone emotional. It is my great pleasure to be a part of this divine program. Hail Siya Ram!,” Modi said on X.
Following the ceremony, Modi is set to speak to the assembled crowd. Additionally, he has plans to visit the Kuber Tila and engage with the workers who played a role in the construction of the temple.
