Ram Mandir: Fragrance of Bhopal's blossoms will waft through Ayodhya

The consecration ceremony of Ramlala is scheduled to take place on January 22 in Ayodhya. The responsibility of maintaining the greenery of the Ram Mandir complex has been entrusted to an environmentally conscious nursery operator from Bhopal, capital of Madhya Pradesh. In line with this, a shipment of 35 thousand small and large plants, featuring approximately five types of flowers, is being dispatched from Bhopal to Ayodhya.

A competitive tender process was conducted among 5 to 6 major firms specializing in horticulture, landscaping, and plantation across the country. Subsequently, the task was awarded to Nisarg, a Bhopal-based nursery.

The initial phase of the project will involve the planting of decorative, large flowers, and shade-providing plants, including those exceeding five feet in height, within the temple premises.

For the embellishment of the Ram Temple, flowering  plants such as Foxtail Palm, Bougainvillea, Tilia Argentea, and Royal Palm are being transported from Bhopal to Ayodhya. Additionally, plants of various other species will also be included in the consignment.

Shipment of flowers dispatched for decoration of Ram temple 

A shipment of flowers destined for the decoration of the Ram temple was dispatched on Friday, marking the commencement of the first phase. Concurrently, nursery operators have set out for Ayodhya to initiate the establishment of a green landscape within the temple complex.

The experienced nursery operator emphasized his extensive background in horticulture, having undertaken significant projects at the national level for both government and semi-government initiatives over the course of 35 years. He expressed enthusiasm for transforming Ayodhya into a fragrant haven through the introduction of Bhopal's blossoming flowers.

About 70 per cent of the 70-acre complex will be a green area, Ram temple trust general secretary Champat Rai told reporters here. "The green area includes portions which are very dense, and in some segments of it, even sunlight hardly filters through," he said. About 600 existing trees are preserved in the green belt.
