Ahead of the ‘Pran Pratishtha’ ceremony, preparations are almost done amid tight security arrangements. Ayodhya will be fortified ahead of the Ram Mandir’s inauguration ceremony with a foolproof security cover.
UP Police has also introduced artificial intelligence-based anti-mine drones to provide 360-degree security coverage. Ayodhya is under the watchful eye of drones and trained security forces equipped with artificial intelligence.
7-day Vedic rituals for the ‘Pran Pratishtha’ ceremony of Ram Lalla in Ayodhya began on January 16. PM Narendra Modi also began an 11-day religious exercise ahead of the Ram Mandir Pran Pratishtha ceremony.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi will preside over the ceremonial installation of Sri Ram Lalla inside the sanctum sanctorum of the Mandir. Earlier in the month, PM Modi announced a special 11-day ‘anushthan’ (ritual) ahead of the Pran Pratishtha ceremony at Ayodhya’s Ram Mandir.
