As the city prepares for the Ram Navami celebration, officials ensure guests are not inconvenienced. Parking facilities have been made available at around 30 locations for devotees visiting the city for darshan.

Authorities have also prohibited the carrying of certain things on the Ram Mandir premises, such as phones, wallets, chargers, and other electronic devices. One can contribute cash at the temple. Make careful you store your luggage at the hotel or storage. This will save you time as well.

To minimise congestion, Ram Mandir will have seven lines instead of four. According to accounts, decorating the Lord Ram statue following the Shayan Aarti takes three to four hours. While the ornaments will not be removed after Shayan Aarti, efforts have been taken to guarantee that devotees do not miss out on the opportunity to see them.

To keep devotees hydrated in the sweltering heat, measures are being made to provide shade from Sugreev Kila to the mandir's exit. Tents and ground matting will also be placed. Water will be offered at numerous locations throughout the route from the entrance to the exit. Authorities are concerned about the risks of dehydration and diarrhoea as temperatures rise. Consequently, ORS powder will also be offered.
