Uddhav Thackeray said, “The consecration of Ayodhya Ram temple is a matter of pride and self-respect. On that day (January 22), we will visit the Kalaram temple at 6.30 pm where Dr Babasaheb Ambedkar and (social reformer) Sane Guruji had to stage protests. At 7.30 pm, we will hold a maha aarti on the banks of the Godavari river."

"We do not want to indulge in matter of who has got the invitation and who has not. When the conseration ceremony will be held in Ayodhya, at the same time, we will participate by offering prayers at the Kala Ram Temple in Nasik. On the same day, we will hold party's conference in Nasik itself," Thackeray added.

Apart from his auspicious visit to Kalaram temple, Shiv Sena chief announced that a rally in Nashik will be organised by the Shiv Sena on January 23, marking the birth anniversary of his father and the founder of the party, late Bal Thackeray.

About Kalaram Temple

The Kalaram Temple, situated in the Panchavati area of Nashik, Maharashtra holds immense religious importance as it is believed to be the place where Lord Rama, his wife Sita, and his brother Lakshmana spent a significant part of their exile during the Ramayana. The primary deity of the Kalaram Temple is Lord Rama. The temple is renowned for its black stone idol of Lord Rama, from which the temple derives its name. "Kala" in Marathi means black, and "Ram" refers to Lord Rama.
