The construction of the Ram Temple could take another three years to complete at an estimated cost of Rs 1100 crore, Ram Janmabhoomi Tirath Kshetra Nyas treasurer Swami Govind Dev Giri Maharaj has said.

Speaking to media persons, Swami Govind Dev Giri Maharaj said: "The main temple will be built in three to three and a half years. It will cost Rs 300-400 crore. The expenditure on the development of the entire 70-acre land will exceed Rs 1100 crore."

Responding to a question from ABP Majha Marathi TV channel, he said that Ram temple trust had turned down a request from corporate houses who had offered to construct the people. 

"Some (corporate) families had approached us, requesting us to hand over the (temple) designs and assuring us they will complete the temple project, but I humbly declined that request," he said.

The Ram Janmabhoomi Tirath Kshetra Nyas treasurer was at the Rashtrapati Bhavan last week when President Ram Nath Kovind contributed Rs 500,100 for the Ram temple construction at Ayodhya.

On January 23, Telugu actor-politician Pawan Kalyan donated Rs 30 lakh for the construction of Ram Temple.

The Jansena Party president said in a statement, "Lord Sri Ramachandra is the replica for dharma and tolerance, sacrifice and bravery shown by him is an inspiration to all. India has withstood many attacks because of the path created by lord Sri Rama. Hence, it is everyone's responsibility to extend solidarity for the construction of the temple in Ayodhya, the replica of such dharma."
