Ayodhya (Uttar Pradesh) – Construction of the ground floor of Shriram Temple in Ayodhya will be completed by October 2023. The Idol of Shriram will be consecrated in the sanctum sanctorum sometime between 15th and 24th January 2024. ‘We are trying to make every design and structure of the temple in such a way that it will remain intact for the next 1,000 years and will not require any repairs’, said Champat Rai, General Secretary of Shriram Janmabhoomi Teerth Kshetra Trust on 16th July.

Rai further said,

1. Shriram Panchayat will be established on the ground floor.
2. 21 lakh cubic feet of granite, marble etc. is being used in the construction of the temple.
3. The door frame of Shriram temple is made of marble, while the doors are made of teak wood from Maharashtra. Carving work on the doors has also started.
4. 162 pillars have been erected on the ground floor of the temple and more than 4,500 Idols are being carved in them. A glimpse of the ‘Tretayug’ can be seen in these. For this purpose, 40 artisans have been called from Kerala and Rajasthan. An artisan takes an estimated 200 days to carve Idols on a pillar.
