The PM Narendra Modi invited by the Shri Ram Janmabhoomi Teertha Kshetra Trust to lay the foundation stone of a grand Ram Temple in Ayodhya. The foundation will be laid either on 3 or 5 August.
The Shri Ram Janabhoomi Teertha Kshetra Trust was formed on February 5 by the PM Modi.
Mahant Kamal Nayan Das, the spokesperson of Trust’s president Nritya Gopal Das said, “We have suggested two auspicious dates – 3 or 5 August – for the prime minister’s visit based on calculations of movements of stars and planets.”
The Ayodhya’s land has been a controversy over the building of Temple and Masjid. However, in last year on November 9, the SC announced that the disputed site in Ayodhya belongs to Ram and announced the building of a Ram Temple by a Trust.
On Saturday in Ayodhya, a meeting took place by the Trust members regarding the decision for the tentative dates in-order to lay the foundation stone of the temple. The meeting was also attended by the Senior advocate K Parasaran, Vasudevanand Saraswati and Swami Vishwa Prasanjeet. They attended the meeting via video links.
Champat Rai who is the GS of the trust said that the Ram Mandir trust will touch 10 crore families across the country for financial aid. He added that in around 3 to 3.5 years the temple’s design will be finalised for its construction.
The meeting also discussed the height of the Ram Mandir to be constructed. Kameshwar Chaupal, a member of the Trust said that the Ram Mandir’s height will be 161 feet and it will have 5 domes.
To end the dispute of the Ayodhya land, SC in its verdict ruled that the disputed land will be under a Central government receiver. It added that the land will be handed over to a trust.
