The ‘Pran Pratishtha’ ceremony of the Ram Temple will be held on January 22. Prime Minister Narendra Modi is set to attend the installation of the idol of Ram Lalla at the grand temple on that day. As per temple officials, the ceremony will be held for seven days starting on January 16.
Thousands of VIP guests have received invitations from Ram Janmabhoomi Teerth Kshetra Trust for the ceremony.
The Trust has made elaborate arrangements to welcome and honor all attendees, presenting them with gifts that include ‘Ram Raj.’ As part of the celebration, Teerth Kshetra Trust will also distribute special ‘Motichoor laddus’ made from desi ghee as ‘Prasad’ to the guests.
Guests attending the Pran Pratistha ceremony on January 22 will receive a unique gift – soil extracted during the foundation excavation of the temple, referred to as ‘Ram Raj.’ The sacred soil from Ram Janmabhoomi will be carefully packed in boxes and presented to attendees during the ceremony.
A member of the Ram Janmabhoomi Teerth Kshetra Trust shared that Prime Minister Narendra Modi, set to attend the event, will be presented with a 15-meter picture of the Ram temple enclosed in a jute bag featuring an image of the sacred structure.
More than 11,000 guests nationwide have received invitations from the Trust for the Pran Pratistha ceremony, with special arrangements underway to provide memorable gifts to all attendees. According to a Trust member, the revered Ram Raj, soil excavated from the temple, will be bestowed upon the guests, serving as a cherished memento. This sacred gift can be used in home gardens or pots, adding a touch of divinity to their homes. Even those unable to attend the Pran Pratishtha program may receive this meaningful gift in the future.
For the ceremony on January 22, the Divisional Commissioner of Ayodhya, Gaurav Dayal, revealed that seating arrangements for 7,500 people have been meticulously planned on the temple premises. Special guests will be assigned unique codes for organized seating.
