Ayodhya Ram Mandir Inauguration highlights: Ayodhya in grip of religious fervour as long-awaited Pran Pratishtha ceremony of Ram Lalla took place on Monday in the presence of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, RSS Chief Mohan Bhagwat and other dignitaries. Army helicopters showered flower petals on the temple premises when the consecration took place.

Crafted by the skilled hands of sculptor Arun Yogiraj from Mysuru, the 51-inch-tall idol, captures the image of a five-year-old Lord Ram standing gracefully on a lotus, all meticulously carved from a single block of stone.

The grand event saw the presence of around 7,000 VVIPs from across the nation which includes actors, sportspersons, industrialists, politicians, etc.

The temple's vertical structure consists of floors, each measuring 20 feet in height, supported by a remarkable ensemble of 392 pillars and adorned with 44 gates.

PM Modi followed a strict 11-day ‘anushthan’ and slept on the floor and had coconut water before the ceremony in Ayodhya on January 22. He also visited several temples across India ahead of the ‘pran-pratishtha’ ceremony of the Ram Mandir and took a holy dip at the Rameswaram 'Angi theerth' beach.

While addressing the gathering in Ayodhya after performing rituals in the Ram Temple consecration ceremony, PM Modi congratulated the people as the hundred years long wait ended on Monday. 

After the consecration of Ram Temple in Ayodhya, PM Modi encouraged people to “lay foundation of India of next 1,000 years; We take pledge to build a capable, grand, divine India from this moment."

“Ram temple's construction will set off a firestorm. They should reconsider as Ram is energy, not fire, a solution not dispute," said PM Modi in Ayodhya on Monday.

Key Highlights of the Pran Pratishtha ceremony:

-PM Modi performed the Pran Pratishtha ceremony of the Ram Lalla idol at the Shri Ram Janmabhoomi Temple in Ayodhya.

-Later he performed the ‘aarti’ of the Ram Lalla idol inside the sanctum sanctorum affter the idol was unveiled at the temple in the presence of the prime minister.

-After performing the whole ritual, PM Modi addressed the gathering at the temple and congratulated people. "Lord Ram has finally arrived (in his abode) following the wait of centuries. After the patience that we showed for centuries and the sacrifices we made, our Lord Ram has finally arrived," PM Modi said during his address.

‘It is doubtful if PM Modi observed fast for 11 days’: Congress' Veerappa Moily

“During a morning walk today, a doctor, who was accompanying me said it is not possible for anyone to survive for 11 days without food. If someone has survived then it is a miracle. Hence, it is doubtful that he (Modi) observed fast," Congress' Veerappa Moily. “If he (Modi) had done Pooja in the sanctum sanctorum of the temple without observing fast then that place will become impure and will not generate (supernatural) power. He (Modi) says he has observed fast for 11 days and survived only on tender coconut. There were no signs of fatigue on his face.
