Ram Mandir Construction Begins in Ayodhya
GUWAHATI: The Ram Janmabhoomi Teertha Kshetra Trust chairman announced the construction of the Temple today, ahead of which, a puja was performed to mark commencement of the construction work.
After a 27 year long period, the idol of Ram Lalla was shifted out of the makeshift temple in a palanquin in Ayodhya and erected in Manas Bhawan. The makeshift temple structure is made of fibre and is bulletproof.
Bringing a century old dispute to an end, the Supreme Court on November 9, 2019 had permitted construction of the Ram Temple at the disputed site.
A 5-judge Constitution bench headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi had said, "The faith of the Hindus that Lord Ram was born at the demolished structure is undisputed.”
The apex court in a unanimous 5-0 verdict also directed the Centre to allot a 5-acre plot to the Sunni Waqf Board for the construction of a mosque.
