Ayodhya Ram Mandir: Work on foundation is complete, Darshan of Bhagwan Ram by 2023
A year after Prime Minister Narendra Modi took part in the ‘Bhoomi pujan‘ for the Ram Mandir in Ayodhya, the construction of its foundation is complete. The foundation for the temple has now been filled with the final, 48th layer of roller-compacted concrete, temple trust members told reporters on Thursday. This was the first time that the trust, tasked with building the Ram Mandir had invited media to see the construction site. According to earlier reports, the site needed a strong foundation as the soil there is unstable.
A 50-foot deep pit, 400-ft by 300 ft, was first excavated. Over the months, it has been filled with 12-inch layers of compacted cement and other building material, including small stones and fly ash. Ram Mandir trust member Anil Misha said an aft will now be built on this. That will be topped by a plinth made out of about 4 lakh cubic feet of pink stone from Mirzapur. The temple will come upon this base.
The Ram Mandir is expected to be opened to devotees by 2023-end but the construction is likely to be completed only in 2025.
Temple trust general secretary Champat Rai said one lakh cubic feet of carved slabs of stone from Rajasthan’s Bansi Paharpur are ready for the construction that would follow. Discussions are also on with experts on the construction of the outer walls of the temple complex.
The Ayodhya Ram Mandir trust was set up after the Supreme Court settled the Ram Janmaboomi-Babri Masjid land dispute in 2019, paving the way for the construction of the temple on the disputed site. The Ram Mandir is expected to be opened to devotees by 2023-end but the construction is likely to be completed only in 2025.
Recently the Trust has tweeted photos of the temple construction site.
The construction of the Bhavya Mandir at Shri Ram Janmabhoomi is going on at a fast pace. It will be ready soon and the doors would be opened for all devotees for darshan.
May Shri Ram bless all.
