The Elusive Ram Mandir: 212 Pillars, 128 Ft High, 5 Entrances

As per the Top Court has cleared decks for temple in Ayodhya, the Ram Janambhoomi Nyas along with the help from VHP will like to start its construction at the earliest. Though, the VHP has toyed with many maps of the Ram Temple, as it conceived over the years; but theres a blueprint based upon the most agreeable version that the majority believes, resembles the original Ram Mandir.

While for years, doors and pillars are being carved in Ayodhya, the sanctum sanctorum needs to be built, with great details, where Ram Lalla, the deity will be placed and worshipped. Though the walls of it are believed to be ready, the garbh griha (sanctum sanctoram) isn't. IANS news agency attributed.

Moreover, A total of 212 pillars will be required across the temple. It will be assembled in two stages with 106 pillars each. Almost half of the pillars are ready while half are yet to be carved. The assembly of pillars will take place in two tiers with the top tier having a roof. According to the approved design, the roof will have a shikhar that will give the massive structure a look and feel of Bhavya Ram Mandir (grand Ram temple).

As per the report, The proposed structure will be 128 feet high. It will be 140 feet in its width and 270 feet in length. What makes this mammoth structure unique is there will be no use of steel as support base. The Ram temple will have 5 entrances: Singh Dwar, Nritya Mandap, Rand Mandap, Pooja Room and the all important Garbh Griha with parikrama. Ram Lalla, the idol will be placed on the ground floor, itself.

At least 1.75 lakh cubic feet of sandstone will be required for the full construction of the temple, as envisioned. A lot has been done, with the work starting as early as 1990. But a lot needs to be done as well. Not just mere assembly, more sandstones, more carving experts and expansion of the existing carving centre in Ayodhya needed to run against time in finishing the temple. Even then, sources say, it won't be an easy task but will require a minimum of 4 years to finish the work completely, agency reported.

Following the agency attribution, I cannot give you a time frame on when work will be finished. But we wish the construction to begin as early as possible, after completing the legal requirement, said Alok Kumar, the international working President of Vishwa Hindu Parishad to ians. One of the main reasons for time consumption is the accessibility to the karyashala. The roads are uneven and hence the supply of stones are also slow. Moreover, the hand carving makes the process slower. However, the work for the ground floor is over.

There is however a confusion, whether to erect a massive, gigantic statue of Lord Ram as many want, or not. The original concept just had Lord Rams idol. It will need deliberation on the statue. But for now, the workforce needs manifold increase and the supply of stones will require to be far more regular to ensure the elusive Ram Mandir comes to being at the once disputed site of Ayodhya and stand tall, in time.

Meanwhile, National general secretary, BJP, Ram Madhav attributed, The Ram temple at Ayodhya will soon be a reality, now that the legal hurdles have been removed by the SC. Symbols of vandalism and iconoclasm at the most sacred places of Hindus, like Ayodhya, have been very big sources of embarrassment as the sentiments associated with such places are quite deep-rooted.

It is not just about a temple or a mosque. There are any number of thriving mosques in the country. There are more than a hundred mosques in the vicinity of Ayodhya, many of them unkept. It is about the renewed sense of assertion of a nation. Together, with a magnificent Ram temple at Ayodhya, shall rise a nation imbued with those values that Gandhi Ji whose 150th birth anniversary we are celebrating, used to describe Ram Rajya, He attributed. 

A British assistant commissioner of the Raj in Faizabad in the 1860s, is among those who played, unwittingly, a key role in providing champions of the Ram Janmabhoomi movement substantive material to make the case that Hindus had launched their struggle for the janmasthan in Ayodhya much before the Ram Lalla idol was installed in 1949. Writing a historical sketch of Fyzabad, as he spelt it Carnegy wrote that, until 1855 Hindus and Muslims alike used to worship in the mosque-temple.” TOI attributed.

Director of India Foundation and BJP National general secretary Ram Madhav remarked that, Ram epitomised values like respect, love and dignity. And such values are not reserved for Rams own people alone, but everyone including the enemies. When he encountered Ravan on the battlefield, he was said to have bowed to him in respect before aiming at him. For him, material wealth alone was not the ultimate goal in life. Even if Lanka were to be a kingdom of gold, I shall consider my mother and motherland to be superior to it,.
