Uttar Pradesh: The construction of Shri Ram Janmabhoomi Mandir has “begun” and the engineers are now testing the soil at the site, Shri Ram Janmabhoomi Teerth Kshetra tweeted in the morning on Thursday.
The shrine will be built by adhering to the country’s ancient and traditional construction techniques. It will also be built to sustain earthquakes, storms and other natural calamities.
Notably, “the iron will not be used in the construction of the temple,” the Trust further informed on the micro-blogging site.
“For Mandir construction, copper plates will be used to fuse stone blocks with each other. The plates should be 18 inches long, 30 mm wide and 3 mm in depth. 10,000 such plates may be required in total structure. We call upon Shri Rambhakts to donate such copper plates to the trust,” Shri Ram Janmabhoomi Teerth Kshetra stated in another tweet.
Notably, Prime Minister Narendra Modi visited Ayodhya on August 5 to take part in the ‘Bhoomi pujan’ at Ram Janmabhoomi site.
Besides, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, Governor Anandiben Patel and Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh chief Mohan Bhagwat among several others were also present at the site for the ceremony. (ANI)
