The Ram Mandir Trust, set up on the Supreme Court’s directions to facilitate the construction of a temple for Lord Ram in Uttar Pradesh’s Ayodhya, has invited Prime Minister Narendra Modi for the ‘Bhoomi Poojan’ ceremony for the construction of the temple in Ayodhya either on August 3 or 5, both auspicious dates, a spokesperson said on Saturday.

The scope of the Ram temple complex will be around 100 to 120 acres. It will cost more than Rs 100 crore and it will take about three and a half years to build. Sompura said that according to the existing design of the temple, it will cost around 100 crores. If there is a change in design, the cost may increase. The cost will also depend on what timeframe the temple has to be completed. More resources and budget will be required to complete the construction in time.

Saturday, Ayodhya attended an important meeting regarding the construction of the temple. He clarified that there has been no change in the structure of Garbhagriha, Aarti Sthal, Sita Kitchen, Rangamandapam. According to the map made earlier, its structure will remain. Sompura said that the height of the new Ram temple has been increased, but it will not be the tallest shrine in India. The height of the summit of many temples in South India is more than 200 to 250 feet. While many temples including Akshardham have five domes. The Dwarka temple is seven storeyed.
