As the inauguration of the Ram Mandir in Ayodhya approaches, officials announced that the temple has been embellished with an abundance of “luxuriant floral arrangements” and radiant lights in preparation for this historic event, capturing global attention. On Saturday (January 20), it was revealed that the entire temple town is immersed in religious fervor, known locally as “Ayodhya Rammay ho rahi hai.”

A temple insider shared that a substantial supply of natural flowers, chosen for their ability to withstand the winter, has been used to adorn the sacred structure. Special floral designs have been meticulously crafted to enhance the temple’s appearance for the momentous occasion.

“These flowers, being natural, are expected to remain fresh during the consecration ceremony. The fragrance and aesthetic beauty of these vibrant blooms add layer of divinity to the temple,” explained a source closely associated with the temple.

Special teams made for decoration

Teams specializing in temple decoration, encompassing floral arrangements and lighting tasks, collaborate seamlessly under the guidance of trust officials.

As per reports, the exterior lighting, designed with a diya theme, seeks to impart a traditional ambiance and accentuate the temple’s intricate features.

The inner sanctum, or garbh griha, will feature traditional diyas, providing a soft illumination that brings out the architectural nuances. The external illumination is scheduled to commence in the evening, as per the source.
