The period of 'Darshan' has been increased by the trust to 19 hours, commencing with the Mangala Aarti and concluding at 11:00 pm.

The Trust said in a post on X that live broadcasts will also be available on its social media sites.

The Sri Ram Janmabhoomi Tirath Kshetra Trust issued an advisory due to the expected surge in devotees. To facilitate entrance for all devotees, VIP darshan and aarti permits were canceled from April 16 to April 18. To make things easier, distinguished visitors were asked to visit after April 19. To speed up darshan and avoid delay, devotees were instructed not to bring valuables or cell phones.

Live coverage of the Ram Navami celebrations at Ram Mandir will be available on Doordarshan and big LED displays located all across Ayodhya city, according to public broadcaster Prasar Bharati. Live coverage will also be available on The Trust's social media platforms. On Ram Navami, the people was asked to refrain from making needless trips to Ayodhya.
