Mysuru: The two rocks sent from Mysuru has reached Ayodhya in Uttar Pradesh on Wednesday February 15. One of these is black in colour while the other is yellow inside.

These rocks are placed near the Deva Rocks in Ramasevakapuram. Sculpture experts are constantly brainstorming about the shape and size of the idol. In this context, the process of examining and selecting the stones for the installation of the deity is going on continuously. Vastu experts are examining the rocks.

Champat Rai, General Secretary of Shri Ram Janmabhoomi Teertha Kshetra Trust, said that wherever such stones are available in country, they are being brought here. It is not mandatory that the idols are made from these stones. After fixing the stone, the sculptor decides whether the statue can be made from that stone or not. After all the stones are collected they are shown to the idol maker. He said that the construction work of Ramlalla idol will be started only after getting the consent of the sculpture experts.

Two rare Saligrama rocks have arrived in Ayodhya in the first week of February from Nepal to carve the idol of Lord Rama in the sanctum sanctorum of Ram Mandir in Ayodhya. Before handing them over to the Ramjanmabhoomi Trust, the temple priests garlanded them and performed sacred rituals. These 60-million-year old Saligrama rocks reached Ayodhya from Nepal in two different trucks. One rock weighs 26 tonnes and the other weighs 14 tonnes, said Prakash Gupta, the Office In-Charge of Sri Ram Janmabhoomi Teertha Kshetra Trust.

The members of Sri Rama Janmabhoomi Teertha Kshetra Trust said that a new idol of Rama will be installed at a height of nine feet in the sanctum sanctorum of the grand Ram Mandir in Ayodhya and the best sculptors will be involved in its construction. After a decade-long legal battle, the Supreme Court on November 9, 2019 cleared the way for the construction of a Ram Mandir at the disputed site in Ayodhya where the Babri Masjid was demolished on December 6, 1992. Prime Minister Narendra Modi performed Bhoomi Pooja for the construction of the Temple on August 5, 2020.
