Uttar Pradesh: Prime Minister Narendra Modi will be attending the foundation laying ceremony for Ram Temple construction in Ayodhya on August 5. The date was finalized by the Prime Minister on Sunday for the stone laying ceremony of Ram Temple.

The member of Sri Ram Janmabhoomi Teertha Kshetra Trust, Govind Giri Maharaj, on Saturday said that the Trust had suggested two dates for Prime Minister Modi's visit.

According to the sources, the other rituals related to the 'bhoomi poojan' ceremony of Ram mandir will begin at 8 am on August 5. The priests from Kashi and Varanasi would do the 'bhoomi poojan'.

Reportedly, the proposed Ram Mandir in Ayodhya will be 161-feet tall with 5 domes, which has been designed by the renowned architect Chandrakant Sompura. Also, the construction would take around 3 and a half years as the construction work has been delayed due to the coronavirus-triggered lockdown.

The Supreme Court, on November 9 last year, made the way for Ram Temple construction by a Trust at the disputed land in Ayodhya. The top court had directed the Centre to allot an alternative 5-acre land to the Sunni Waqf Board for building a new mosque at a "prominent" place in the holy town in Uttar Pradesh.
