The Ram temple construction in Ayodhya started in Ayodhya after an elaborate 'Rudra Abhishek' ceremony held at the Kuber Tila temple.

In view of the corona crisis, plans to hold a grand "bhumi pujan" ceremony has been put off for now.“We will be following the tradition of Lord Rama by offering prayers first to Lord Shiva,” he had said. Special prayers were performed by Mahant Kamal Nayan Das along with other priests on behalf of Ram Mandir Trust president and the ceremony lasted about two hours.

The Supreme Court on November 9, 2019, paved the way for the construction of a Ram Temple.

Chandrakant Sompura's design likely to be finalized

In February this year, the Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) had requested the Ram Janmabhoomi Teertha Kshetra Trust to keep the design finalized by the Ram Janmabhoomi Nyas with VHP working president Alok Kumar saying that they wanted the original design as it had been widely endorsed by the Ram Mandir movement.

The VHP’s Ram Janmabhooml Temple model has been designed by renowned architect Chandrakant Sompura and it was VHP chief Ashok Singhal who entrusted him with the task.

Sompura’s grandfather Prabhashanker Sompura, who has authored 14 books on temple architecture now considered classics, had redesigned the Somnath Temple.

Sompura has also designed Swaminarayan temple built at Neasden in London in a record period of 28 months.

Nagara architecture to be used

As per the details accessed by Times Now, Nagara architecture will be used which is prevalent in the north and west India and only stone slabs will be used and not cement or steel.

Meanwhile, Mahant KN Das said that he will be meeting PM Narendra Modi soon, however, the date is not fixed yet.

"These days PM isn't participating in any event due to COVID-19 outbreak, else he would've laid foundation stone of Ram Mandir long back," he added.

According to Sompura, nearly 40 per cent of the stone carvings have been completed and he believes that the construction will be finished within 24 and 30 months.
