Prime Minister Narendra Modi is scheduled to lay the foundation stone of the Ram Temple in Ayodhya on Wednesday according to Mahant Nritya Gopal Das, the president of the Sri Ram Janmabhoomi Teertha Kshetra Trust.
The construction work of the Ram temple will begin after the foundation stone laying ceremony, in which chief ministers of several states, ministers from the Union Cabinet and RSS Chief Mohan Bhagwat are also likely to participate.
According to potters in the state, around 1.25 lakh diyas (earthen lamps) were ordered for the ceremony on 5 August.
