After the completion of the Mandir foundation, raft and plinth, the placement of Bansi Paharpur Rajasthan stone on the three-storey Mandir is in full swing. The construction work on infrastructure buildings is in full force for completion by October 2023.

Here’s a look at the grand and prestigious Shri Ram Mandir:

Size of the Mandir

The total area of the mandir including the peripheral Parkota is 8.64 acres. The Parkota is 762 meter long with provision for six mandirs and facility of ‘Parikrama’ by devotees. The ancient ‘Kuber Tila’ with Shiva mandir and proposed ‘Jatayu’ would also attract devotees once completed.

Apart from Garbh Grah (Sanctum Sanctorum) the mandir has five Mandaps – Gudh Mandap, Rang Mandap, Nritya Mandap, Prathana Mandap and Kirtan Mandap. The dome size of the five mandaps are 34 Feet width and 32 Feet length and height from courtyard ranging from 69 feet to 111 feet.

The door of Sanctum Sanctorum will be ornated with gold. The entire Sanctum Sanctorum has been aesthetically carved with Makrana marble pillars, beams, ceiling and wall cladding. There are 392 pillars which have been structurally provided taking into consideration the load factor and other climatic challenges.

The Mandir will have both internal and external lighting arrangements with in ground uplighter, cove lighting, spot lightings and flexible linear lighting for ghumat level. The external view of the mandir will have projected façade lighting.

Ayodhya is gearing up and getting a facelift to make the “Shri Ram Janmabhoomi” as center of attraction. Along with the Mandir, Ayodhya is getting state of art infrastructure facilities.


The Ayodhya railway station is getting a makeover and will be a replica of the Shri Ram Mandir. Equipped with modern facilities, the first phase of the new station has been completed. About Rs.241 crore have been spent to complete the work of the first phase of the world-class railway station in Ayodhya.

The station will have facilities like built parking, accommodation for employees, office for railway police, construction of three new platforms.

It will be in the form of Lord Ram’s temple. With the landing of devotees in the city of religion, the Ayodhya Dham railway station will give an impression of reaching the birthplace of Lord Ram.


The Maryada Purushottam Shri Ram International Airport coming up in Ayodhya is being designed to give wings to the holy city. The construction is in full swing. The first terminal with a capacity of 300 passengers will be operational soon, while the remaining three terminals will be fully completed in 2025.

Bus Terminus

A world-class bus terminus will come up in this holy city of Uttar Pradesh soon to facilitate the smooth movement of pilgrims and tourists, providing them a feasible option of commuting.

With the construction of Ram Temple nearing its completion, the Uttar Pradesh government has been planning to provide for a hassle-free transportation option to the people, and the bus terminus along with the upcoming airport is a part of that.


Considering the expected footfall in Ayodhya, hotels, restaurants, cinemas as well as shopping complexes are exploring possibilities for themselves. Many big companies have even bought land for extending their operations here.

Tourist footfall from all over the world is set to increase once the construction of the grand temple gets complete. If we look at the figures for the years 2021 and 2022, about four crore devotees have come to Ayodhya. After the construction of the temple in 2024, this figure is estimated to reach close to 8 to 10 crores.
