Ram Mandir construction on schedule, likely to open to public by Dec 2023
The third phase of construction work of the Ram Mandir in Ayodhya which includes the plinth of the main structure has begun and will be completed by May, the temple’s trust said on Thursday. “The construction work of the temple is progressing according to the plan and by December 2023, devotees will be able to get the opportunity of Lord Shri Ram darshan,” said Ram Janmabhoomi Teerth Kshetra Trust in a statement.
In the first two phases of the construction work, the temple’s foundation and raft were laid, it said, adding that the third phase has begun which includes constructing the plinth. “With a view to achieving strength, other physical and chemical features, and consequent longevity, the work of plinth with granite stone has begun from January 24 this year. Keeping in mind the longevity of the temple life, it was decided to use the strongest natural granite of southern India. Thus, the third phase construction of the temple with stone has formally commenced,” the trust said.
On this plinth, which acts as the base for the building, the super-structure of the temple will be constructed. About 17,000 granite stones of size 5 ft x 2.5 ft x 3 ft will be used in the construction of the plinth. The weight of each stone is approximately 2.50 tonnes. The activity of laying granite stone is likely to be completed by May. After the completion of plinth work, the actual construction of the temple’s main structure would start.
A few days back the trust has uploaded the photos from the Ayodhya Ram Mandir construction site:
Today the process of placing granite stones over the raft built at the Shri Ram Janmabhoomi site was initiated after Pujan. These granite stones will help raise the flooring of the Mandir.
