During the excavation at the Ram Janmabhoomi site, remains of an ancient temple were found. This included various idols and pillars.
Champat Rai, the Secretary-General of the Shri Ram Janmabhoomi Teerth Kshetra, shared information on Tuesday (September 12) that during the excavation at the Ram Janmabhoomi site in Ayodhya, several remains of an ancient temple have been found. He mentioned that most of the remains were in the form of pillars and idols.
“During the excavation at the Ram Janmabhoomi site, remains of an ancient temple were found. This included various idols and pillars,” read Rai’s post on Twitter.
Rai, who is also the International General Secretary of the Vishva Hindu Parishad (VHP), shared an image in which some parts made of large stones and pillars with carvings of deities are visible.
In the meantime, in January 2024, the consecration ceremony of Ram Lalla and the final installation of the idol in the temple’s sanctum sanctorum in Ayodhya will begin with five days of Vedic rituals, as suggested by Vedic priests.
Additionally, the VHP plans to invite around 2,000 saints from nearly 150 sects across the country for the inauguration ceremony of the Ram Temple in Ayodhya, as part of the countrywide connect, similar to the car seva and shila pujan programs organized during the Ram Temple movement of the 1990s.
The senior leaders of the organization have also decided to appoint VHP functionaries in all those five lakh villages associated with the VHP, where it plans to build a connect, like the one it has planned with the Bajrang Dal’s ‘Shourya Yatra.’ Sharad Sharma, the regional spokesperson of VHP, said that they have decided to strengthen their base in these villages and has plans to form a team that will reach these villages with the ‘Shourya Yatra.’
