The idol of Ram Lalla was ceremoniously brought inside the sanctum sanctorum of the Ram temple on Wednesday night, said Nripendra Mishra, chair- person, Shri Ram Mandir Construction Committee. 

Preceding the idol’s placement, a special puja was conducted within the sanctum sanctorum. The transportation of the idol to the temple was carried out in a truck. A total of 121 ‘acharyas’ are actively involved in conducting the intricate rituals associated with the consecration process.

The ‘Pran Pratishtha’ ceremony at the Ram temple is slated to start at 12.20 pm on January 22, and conclude by 1 pm. Despite the idol of Ram Lalla being placed inside the sanctum sanctorum, it has not yet been formally ‘virajmaan’ (installed), revealed priest Arun Dixit.
