The Shri Ram Janmbhoomi Teerth Kshetra Trust has dispatched over 6,000 invitation cards to individuals across the nation, inviting them to partake in the grand consecration ceremony of 'Ram Lalla.' The event is expected to witness the presence of dignitaries, including Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath.
In a significant international gesture, Thailand has contributed to the auspicious occasion by sending soil from its land to the Ramjanmabhoomi, following a prior gesture of sending water from its two rivers. The contributions to the Ram Temple's construction have poured in not only from various parts of India but also from across borders.
The consecration ceremony is set to be a grand celebration resembling a festival, according to Tourism Minister Jaiveer Singh. The Uttar Pradesh state government has planned extensive events, including recitations of the Ram Charitmanas and Hanuman Chalisa in temples and 'muths' throughout the state from January 14 until the consecration ceremony. These programs will be orchestrated by local artists through the Uttar Pradesh Tourism and Culture Council established in every district.
As the nation eagerly awaits this historic event, the unveiling of the invitation cards adds an extra layer of excitement to the already monumental occasion.
