The three-day Vedic rituals at the Ram Temple in Ayodhya began on Monday and end with bhoomi poojan today. Prime Minister Narendra Modi laid the foundation stone of the Ram Mandir, which is likely to be constructed just before 2024 Lok Sabha elections. Modi was among the 175 people present at the ceremony. He shared the dais with just four other people — RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat, trust chief Nritya Gopaldas Maharaj, Uttar Pradesh Governor Anandiben Patel, and CM Yogi Adityanath.
Eight priests from Ayodhya, five each from Varanasi and Delhi, and three from Kamikochi in Tamil Nadu, performed the rituals at Ram Janmabhoomi for the construction of the temple.
