Significance of the Ram Mandir
The Ram Janmabhoomi movement to construct a temple in Ayodhya has great importance for many Hindus globally. Destruction of a Ram Mandir structure originally built there sparked demands starting in the 1980s to honor the significance of the site dedicated to Lord Ram. Ground was finally broken in a special 2020 ceremony headed by Prime Minister Modi.
In the over 3 years since construction began, the temple’s main structures and carved pillars have began to take shape. Skilled artisans have been working to create a magnificent representation of traditional Nagara style Hindu temple architecture infused with symbolism dedicated to Lord Ram.
By March 2024, the goal is for the Ram Mandir to be finished with all intricate religious iconography and murals completed in time for a celebration filled inauguration of the landmark that devotees have long been waiting for.
The 2024 opening ceremony is sure to be packed full of pomp and grandeur as visitors ranging from everyday worshippers to India’s top politicians and celebrities gather in Ayodhya mark the special occasion. The guest list represents the massive cultural and spiritual significance placed on the new Ram Mandir.
