Rajasthan's Special Contribution to Ayodhya Ram Mandir Construction

The Ramlala's pran pratishtha in Ayodhya Ram Mandir, dedicated to Lord Shri Ram, is scheduled for January 22 in Ayodhya, with preparations in full swing. Rajasthan shares a unique connection with this sacred temple, as the grand structure is crafted from sandstone sourced from Bijolyia in the Bhilwara district.


In the outer parikrama, parking and walkway of the temple, sandstones are being beautifully installed in a combination of gray and red. The stone is meticulously mined from the Bijoliya mines and factories. The skilled workers engaged in carving express their sense of fortune in contributing to the construction of Lord Shri Ram's temple.

Three firms from Bijoliya have received work orders for the supply of stone, covering a total area of 5 lakh square feet for the temple. The specifications include two by two feet-sized stones in gray and red, with a thickness ranging from 40 mm to 75 mm for the parikrama area, Kubre Tila, walkway, and parking. 

As of now, sandstones for 65 thousand square feet of flooring have been sent and installed in the temple, with over 4 thousand tonnes of sandstone delivered through 100 trucks.
