Pune: The celebration of the Ram Temple inauguration in Ayodhya will have a significant impact on the entire temple town, covering the land, water and sky. The Yogi government has allocated Rs 100 crore to support and honour the grand opening of the Ram temple in January.
The state’s tourism and culture departments will collaborate to plan events for December and January, to generate excitement for the temple’s opening in both physical and digital spaces. Preparations are currently underway for a series of events leading up to the temple’s inauguration.
These events will highlight various aspects of the epic Ramayana, targeting the younger generation. Additionally, the departments plan to partner with influential individuals on social media to promote temple-related events and the overall development of Ayodhya. In line with the chief minister’s directives, films, video reels, and audio-visual materials are being produced to showcase events and incidents from Valmiki’s Ramayana and Tulsidas’s Ramcharit Manas.
Furthermore, there is a plan to publish and promote several books centred around Lord Ram. An album featuring a collection of Indian and international devotional songs dedicated to Ram will also be released shortly. To convey the message across land, water, and sky, a senior government official has stated that an action plan has been prepared.
Every evening, episodes from the epic will be projected on the ghats of the Saryu River. Efforts are also being made to utilize water as a backdrop for a laser show, with intentions to display text on the Saryu River. Additionally, drone shows will be organized over the river and other areas of Ayodhya to demonstrate the Yogi government’s commitment to Lord Ram.
The façade design work for the 13-kilometer-long Ram Path is in its final stages, according to Satyendra Singh, the Secretary of the Ayodhya Development Authority. Once completed, the entire town will exude the same appearance and ambience as the Ram temple before its inauguration.
