Ayodhya’s Ram temple has adjusted its schedule to provide some rest for ‘Ram Lalla’ the five-year-old deity, by closing its doors for an hour every day in the afternoon. 

Starting from Friday, the temple trust has extended the ‘darshan’ timings from 6 am to 10 pm, taking into account the increased influx of devotees following the consecration ceremony. Prior to this change, the darshan timings were from 7 am to 6 pm, with a two-hour break from 1:30 pm to 3:30 pm.

Chief Priest Acharya Satyendra Das explained, “Shri Ram Lalla is a five-year-old child and he cannot take the stress of staying awake for such long hours. So, to give some rest to the child deity, the trust has decided that the doors of the temple will remain closed from 12:30 pm to 1:30 pm, so that the deity may take rest.” The temple’s previous routine involved waking up the deity at 4 am for morning rituals, with ‘darshan’ allowed until 10 pm.

The consecration ceremony of the Ram temple occurred on January 22, presided over by Prime Minister Narendra Modi and attended by numerous VVIPs. Since its inauguration, the temple has witnessed over a million devotees seeking the blessings of Lord Ram Lalla. 

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and Punjab Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann recently offered prayers at the temple, spending around one hour and 15 minutes at the sacred site. Kejriwal, who was invited to the consecration ceremony in January, expressed his desire to visit later with his family.
