Shilas From Nepal Reach Ayodhya For Ram-Janki Idols in Ram Mandir

Shilas from Nepal reach today Ayodhya for Ram-Janki Idols in Ram Mandir. At the birthplace of the Hindu god Lord Ram, priests and locals greeted the precious stones, decorating the boulders with garlands and performing rituals before presenting them to the Shri Ram Janmabhoomi Teerth Kshetra Trust.

The boulders are anticipated to be used in the construction of the Ram and Janaki idols, which will be erected in the Ram Mandir’s main temple structure, which is still under construction. The Shaligrams, who were only to be found on the banks of the Kali Gandaki River, which flows through the Myagdi and Mustang areas, came from Janakpur, Sita’s birthplace, in Nepal to Ayodhya on large trucks.

The Janaki Temple cooperated with the Nepali Congress leader and former deputy prime minister Bimalendra Nidhi, who is from Janakpur, the birthplace of Sita, to send the two stones from the Kali Gandaki River, where Shaligrams are common.
