“The replica is very similar to the original Ram Temple. Thousands of people are involved in the construction of the grand Ram temple. Earlier, we used to present our guests (visitors) and VIPs with a replica of the Taj Mahal but now we can gift them miniature versions of the Ram Temple,” Ajay Kumar, a resident of Ayodhya, told ANI.
