Ram Mandir Ayodhya: Ram Mandir Nirman Samiti chairman Nripendra Mishra on Monday said the first floor of the Ram Mandir will be completed by July this year and hoped that the construction of the Ram Mandir will be completed by December 2024. "The work on the first floor of the temple under construction will be completed by the end of July. After July, only the construction of the second floor will remain. So, we hope that the construction of the temple will be completed by December," Mishra told reporters in Ayodhya.

What did he say about not applying tilak on the forehead of devotees?

Mishra said that marble from Rajasthan will be used to build 'Ram Darbar' and seven temples and four sculptors have been selected for this. On the recent controversy raised in a section of the media regarding not applying tilak on the forehead of devotees visiting Ram Mandir, Mishra said, "Earlier, the devotees who used to come were not applied tilak. They used to go away after having darshan of the Lord. Only some special people, who came from the other gate, were applied tilak." Mishra said, "So it is completely misleading to say that tilak and charanamrit of the Lord are not being given. No new restrictions have been imposed. Everyone is being treated equally, whether he is a common devotee or a special one."

More than 1.75 crore devotees have visited the temple till June 23

Mishra said that from January 22 to June 23, more than 1.75 crore devotees have come to the temple to see Ramlala. He said that on an average one lakh devotees come to the temple for darshan every day. He said that by the end of this month, it is expected that two crore devotees will have come to the temple for darshan.

Pran Pratishtha was done in the presence of PM Modi

On January 22 this year, the Pran Pratishtha of the new idol of Ramlala was done in the temple of Ayodhya in the presence of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Modi had also called for going beyond the construction of a grand temple and laying the foundation of a "strong, capable and divine" India for the next 1,000 years. The temple complex, built in traditional Nagar style, is 380 feet long (east-west direction), 250 feet wide and 161 feet high. Each floor of the temple is 20 feet high and has a total of 392 pillars and 44 gates. Statues of Hindu gods and goddesses have been made on the pillars and walls of the temple.
