Start of ‘Ram Rajya’ in Ayodhya



Start of ‘Ram Rajya’ in Ayodhya

On a historic day, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi orchestrated the grand inauguration of the Ram Temple in Ayodhya, witnessed by a distinguished gathering of 8000 invitees on January 22nd, 2024.

Commencing at 12:45 pm, the Pran Pratishtha ceremony unfolded meticulously, aligning with the auspicious muhurt (time) designated by revered Saints. The doors of the temple will graciously swing open to the public starting Tuesday. This landmark event garnered the esteemed presence of Uttar Pradesh CM Yogi Adityanath, RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat, Indian business magnate Mukesh Ambani, and several luminaries from the Bollywood realm.

Sources close to Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi revealed, “Narendra Modi observed an 11-day fast, culminating in breaking the fast by partaking in the Charnamrit (Prasad) from the sacred precincts of the Ram Temple.”

Monday afternoon witnessed Prime Minister Narendra Modi completing the ‘pran pratishtha,’ a consecration of the Ram Temple in Ayodhya—a monumental realization of the BJP’s 50-year endeavor, strategically unveiled three months before the general election.



However, the event was not without its share of controversies, with shankaracharyas from premier monasteries choosing to abstain. The shankaracharyas from Puri and Joshimath criticised the consecration of an incomplete temple and questioned the seating arrangement, as PM Modi found himself inside the sanctum sanctorum while they were allocated seats outside. This controversy took on a political angle, according to their claims.

The construction of the temple commenced following a landmark Supreme Court judgment in 2019, allocating the disputed land for a temple and providing an alternate plot for a mosque to the Muslim community. The issue, rooted in a post-Independence legal battle, escalated when fervent karsevaks demolished a 16th-century mosque on the site, believing it stood atop the birthplace of Lord Ram’s temple. The Ram Temple now stands as a testament to India’s cultural and spiritual heritage, transcending time and politics.
