Construction of Shri Ram Janmbhoomi Mandir in Ayodhya begins
The construction of Shri Ram Janmbhoomi Mandir has begun. Engineers from CBRI Roorkee, IIT Madras along with L and T are now testing the soil at the mandir site. In a series of tweets, Shri Ram Janmbhoomi Teerth Kshetra said, the construction work is expected to finish in 36 to 40 months. The Mandir will be built by adhering to India’s ancient and traditional construction techniques. It will also be built to sustain earthquakes, storms and other natural calamities. Iron will not be used in the construction of the Mandir.
For Mandir construction, copper plates will be used to fuse stone blocks with each other. Ten thousand such plates will be required in total structure. The trust has called upon Shri Rambhakts to donate such copper plates to the trust. Donors can engrave family names, place of origin or their community temples’ names on these plates. The trust said, the copper plates will not only symbolize the unity of this country but also be a testament to the entire country’s contribution towards Mandir construction.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi had performed Bhoomi Poojan and laid the foundation stone of Grand Ram Temple in Ayodhya on 5th of this month.
