PM Performs Bhoomipujan For Ram Temple At Ayodhya
After laying the foundation stone for the Ram temple in Ayodhya on Wednesday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi termed the ‘bhoomi pujan’ event as an “emotional moment” for the entire country and added that “every heart is illuminated today”.
“Every heart is illuminated; it is an emotional moment for the entire country… A long wait ends today… A grand temple will now be built for our Ram Lalla who had been living under a tent for many years,” said Prime Minister Modi at foundation stone-laying ceremony of the Ram temple.
“With the construction of this temple, not only history is being made, but is being repeated. The way boatmen to tribals helped Lord Ram, the way children helped Lord Krishna lift Govardhan mountain, similarly, with everyone’s efforts temple construction will be completed,” he added.
Earlier today, Prime Minister Modi conducted ‘bhoomi pujan’ for the construction work of Ram temple.
All in attendance sat around the havan fire maintaining social distancing norms while wearing masks, in the wake of COVID-19 pandemic.
The priests chanted vedic mantras and hymns as per the rituals of the ‘yagya’.
Besides, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, Governor Anandiben Patel and Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh Chief Mohan Bhagwat among several others were present at the site for the ceremony.
Earlier today, PM Modi planted a ‘parijat’ sapling in the temple premises, considered a divine plant, ahead of the foundation stone-laying of Ram Temple.
PM Modi arrived at Ram Janmabhoomi site after offering prayers at the Hanuman Garhi Temple in Ayodhya.
