Ayodhya Decked Up For Ram Mandir's Grand 'Bhoomi Pujan' Ceremony

Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath and Union minister Smriti Irani tweeted ‘Jai Shree Ram’ as stage is all set for ‘bhumi pujan’ of a grand temple in Ayodhya. The ceremony is said to take place at 12:40 pm, which is the ‘muhurt’ for the foundation stone laying ceremony.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi along with CM Adityanath and 175 people who figure in a select guest list of seers and politicians will attend the ceremony.

Ayodhya:

Police barricades, yellow banners, walls with a fresh coat of paint and the sounds of ‘bhajan’ mark parts of Ayodhya as the city awaits the laying of first brick of the Ram temple. The groundbreaking ceremony will be telecast live. Prior to the function, Modi will take part in ‘pooja’ and ‘darshan’ at Hanumangarhi.

Then he will travel to ‘Shree Ram Janmabhoomi’ where he will take part in pooja and darshan of ‘Bhagwan Shree Ramlala Virajman’.

Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Aditynath’s official residence at 5 Kalidas Marg in Lucknow was fully illuminated on Tuesday on the eve of the temple. Apart from scores of diyas, ‘rangoli’ made with flowers added colour to the residence.

Since Monday, Ayodhya has been illuminated in varied colours in “Diwali-like celebrations”.

As the sun set on the horizons of Ayodhya in the backdrop of the Saryu river, people from different walks of life lit earthen lamps to celebrate their “moment of joy” on Tuesday.

As the evening progressed, Ram bhajans echoed at virtually each and every street of the temple town. And earthen lamps lined the streets from Naya Ghat and Ram ki Paidhi to Hanumangarhi.

COVID-19:

Concerned over the spread of coronavirus, authorities in Ayodhya are encouraging others not to come to the temple town. Also, asking them to mark the occasion by celebrating at their homes.

Senior Superintendent of Police Deepak Kumar said the focus of the force is on maintaining the Covid-19 protocol. “So we are not going to allow any outsider to enter Ayodhya city,” he said.
