Ayodhya, India – In a momentous development, the idol of Ram Lalla, carved in black stone by Mysuru sculptor Arun Yogiraj, reached the Ayodhya temple late Wednesday evening, setting the stage for the upcoming ‘Pran Pratistha’ ceremony. Weighing around 150-200 kg, the sacred idol was carefully lifted by a crane and is poised to be installed in the sanctum sanctorum of the temple.

The arrival of the idol was a grand spectacle, marked by a procession that accompanied the truck carrying the revered statue. The procession made a symbolic stop at the Hanumangarhi temple in Ayodhya, adding a touch of tradition to the ceremonial journey.

Late in the evening, the idol was hoisted from the truck using a crane, capturing the attention of onlookers. An image later revealed the solemn moment when the idol was gently placed inside the sanctum sanctorum, an event witnessed by temple workers. Before the installation, a special puja was conducted in the sacred space.

Shri Ram Mandir Construction Committee chairperson Nripendra Mishra shared that the idol is likely to be officially installed in the sanctum sanctorum on Thursday, marking a crucial step in the weeklong rituals leading up to the grand ‘Pran Pratistha’ ceremony scheduled for January 22.

This significant occasion saw the culmination of preparations that began the previous night. The idol, adorned with flowers, was carefully positioned on a truck for its journey to the new Ram temple complex. The use of a crane ensured the safe and respectful transport of the sacred artifact.

In a parallel event, a silver idol of Ram Lalla, distinct from the one designated for the sanctum sanctorum, graced the premises of the Ram temple. The silver idol, adorned with roses and marigolds, toured the sacred site, adding a touch of spirituality to the ongoing rituals. As part of the preparations, a “Kalash Pujan” ceremony took place, contributing to the consecrated atmosphere surrounding the upcoming inauguration.

The Hindu
The entire city of Ayodhya is witnessing a vibrant display of faith and devotion as devotees eagerly anticipate the momentous ‘Pran Pratistha’ ceremony, a landmark event that will mark the formal installation of the idol of Ram Lalla in the temple’s sanctum sanctorum.
