The 50-meter tall temple, dedicated to Lord Ram Lalla, now stands on the grounds where the Babri Masjid once existed before its demolition in 1992.

As the roads were congested, trains were filled to capacity, and a multitude marched on foot, the atmosphere in Ayodhya was charged with enthusiasm. The pran-pratishtha ceremony, that commenced around 12:20 pm, witnessed nearly 7,000 attendees, including political figures, industrialists, celebrities, and sports personalities.

PM Modi entered the temple arena, ascending the stairs to reach the sanctum sanctorum where the pran-pratistha ceremony was taking place. Demonstrating his deep devotion, he observed a fast for 11 days, sustaining himself solely on fruits and coconut water. Additionally, during this period, he chose to sleep on the floor, symbolizing his commitment to actively participate in the sacred pran pratistha rituals.
