Ayodhya Ram Temple To Be Ready By Jan 1, 2024

New Delhi: The Ram temple in Ayodhya will be ready by January 1, 2024, Union Home Minister Amit Shah told reporters in Tripura today, penciling a strong beginning for the election year.

The general elections are due in 2024 and the opening of the temple is expected to be a milestone for the ruling BJP, which counts the temple movement as the fulcrum for its emergence as a national electoral force in the 1990s.

“The Congress hindered the construction of Ram Temple in courts… After the Supreme Court verdict came, Prime Minister Narendra Modi began the construction of the temple,” Mr Shah said.

In November, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath had said that the construction of the temple had crossed the halfway mark and it would be ready by December this year.

The construction at the site — caught in a legal dispute for decades — started in August 2020 after the Supreme Court handed it over for a temple. Its foundation stone was laid by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on August 5.

The completed temple will have 160 columns on the ground floor, 132 columns on the first floor and 74 columns on the second floor. There will be five “mandaps” or pavilions. There will be a pilgrim facilitation centre, museum, archives, research centre, auditorium, a cattle shed, an administrative building and rooms for priests on the grounds.
