Flowers adorning the temple, special lights to enhance the aesthetic appeal — with barely 24 hours to go, the Ram Temple in Ayodhya is all set for the consecration ceremony.

On Saturday, the Shri Ram Janmabhoomi Teerth Kshetra Trust released images showcasing the temple being adorned with “rich stocks” of flowers.

“These are all natural flowers and due to winter can last longer. So they will remain fresh on the day of the consecration ceremony. The fragrance and the aesthetic appeal of these vibrant flowers have lent another layer of divinity to the temple,” a source told PTI.

The source also mentioned that decorative lights used for external illumination are themed after diyas, providing a traditional aesthetic to accentuate the temple’s ornate elements.

“Inside the garbh griha, the traditional diya will be used,” he said, adding, the soft illumination on the inner side of the temple will highlight the architectural elements while the outer illumination will get turned on only after evening.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi will also continue his visit to historical temples in Tamil Nadu that have a connection with Lord Ram today.

On Sunday, the PM will be in Dhanushkodi, offering prayers at the Sri Kothandaramar Swami Temple. The temple is believed to be the place where the younger brother of Ravan, Vibhishan, had come to meet Lord Ram and join his army because he was against Ravan’s abduction of Sita.
