The Ram Mandir stands as a Hindu temple in Ayodhya, Uttar Pradesh, India, situated at the sacred site of Ram Janmabhoomi, believed to be the birthplace of Lord Rama, a prominent deity in Hinduism.
On August 5, 2020, the Bhumi Pujan ceremony marked the initiation of the construction of the Ram Mandir, led by Narendra Modi, the Prime Minister of India. The temple, currently in the construction phase, is supervised by the Shri Ram Janmabhoomi Teerth Kshetra Trust.
Today, Prime Minister Narendra Modi served as the Mukhya Yajman, overseeing the rituals and performing the Prana Pratishtha of Ram Lalla during the event. The consecration ceremony marks the culmination of the initial phase of the temple's construction, facilitated by a 2019 Supreme Court judgment in the Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid title suit.
