Ayodhya: Prime Minister Narendra Modi performed the ‘bhumi pujan’ of Ram temple in Ayodhya on Wednesday, August 5.

Speaking on the occasion, Modi said, “I express gratitude to all citizens of this nation, Indian diaspora across the world, and all the devotees of Lord Ram on this occasion. ‘Bhumi Pujan’ marks the culmination of years of resolve, dedication, and struggle of many people. People who are witnessing this event are emotional today.”

“From Kanyakumari to Kshirbhavani, Koteshwar to Kamakhya, Jagannath to Kedarnath, Somnath to Kashi Vishwanath- the entire country is immersed in Lord Ram today. People throughout the world are resonating ‘Jai Shriram’,” he said.

“Ram Mandir will be a modern symbol of our culture and nationalist feelings and it will open up new economic opportunities for the region. History is not just being created today, it is also repeating itself,” he further added.

RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat and Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath were among those who attended the event at the site where a large number of devout Hindus believe Lord Ram was born.

Bhajans and shlokas’ were heard as the town, festooned with marigold flowers and yellow and saffron flags, celebrated the beginning of the construction of a grand Ram temple. Roads leading to Ayodhya were adorned with hoardings of the proposed temple and of Ram Lalla, the infant Ram, the deity now housed in a makeshift temple. Most shops were painted in bright yellow.

The prime minister arrived in Ayodhya in a helicopter where Adityanath among others received him.

Before the function to lay the foundation stone of the ‘Shree Ram Janmabhoomi Mandir’, the prime minister took part in prayers at the Hanumangarhi temple.

From there, he traveled to the ‘Shree Ram Janmabhoomi’ where he performed prayers at the ‘Bhagwan Shree Ramlala Virajman’.

He also planted a Parijat (Indian night jasmine) sapling.
