The Ram Temple construction in Ayodhya could begin on either August 3 or August 5 once Prime Minister Narendra Modi accepts the invitation sent by the Shri Ram Janmbhoomi Tirth Kshetra Trust to lay the foundation stone, a trust official said on Saturday.
“We have suggested two auspicious dates — August 3 and 5 — for the prime minister’s visit based on calculations of movements of stars and planets,” Mahant Kamal Nayan Das, the spokesperson of Ram Mandir Trust president Nritya Gopal Das was quoted as saying by news agency ANI.
Another Trust official, Kameshwar Chaupal said that they have asked the PM to choose one date. “We have sent to the Prime Minister two dates to choose from – either 3rd August or 5th August – as the date to lay down the foundation of the Ram Temple. The construction will begin on the date he deems fit,” ANI quoted Kameshwar Chaupal of the Ram Janmabhoomi Teerth Kshetra Trust as saying.
The trust met in Ayodhya earlier today especially to decide the date for beginning of the construction. It also announced that soil testing has begun for the laying of Ram Temple’s foundation.
