Another picture was released earlier in the day, wherein the statue carved in black stone could be seen with its eyes covered with a yellow cloth. It's adorned with a garland of roses, Sharad Sharma, an office-bearer of the VHP told PTI.

The 51-inch idol of Lord Ram as a child was brought to the temple on Wednesday night. The idol was sculpted by Mysuru-based sculptor Arun Yogiraj. 

The new idol of Lord Ram was placed in the sanctum sanctorum or 'Garbha Griha' of the Ram Janmabhoomi temple on Thursday afternoon. This was done amid the chanting of prayers, according to the Shri Ram Janmbhoomi Teerth Kshetra trust.
