It is being built at the site of Ram Janmabhoomi, the believed birthplace of Rama, a revered deity in Hinduism. The temple is designed in the Nagara style of architecture, characterized by its tall shikhara (spires) and intricate carvings. The temple complex will cover an area of 134 acres and will have three domes, each representing a different Hindu deity. The construction of the temple began in 2020 and was open to devotees on January 22nd, 2024. The construction of Ram Mandir is expected to have a significant impact on Ayodhya. The city is already witnessing a surge in tourism and economic activity. The temple is expected to become a major pilgrimage center and a symbol of Hindu faith and culture.

Ram Mandir in Ayodhya is embracing solar and clean energy in a big way, aligning with its rich cultural heritage and environmental responsibility. Here’s a glimpse into its initiatives:

Ram Mandir Shining with Solar:

  • 40 MW Solar Power Plant: A massive 40 MW solar power plant is being established on the banks of the Saryu River by NTPC Green. This will significantly contribute to Ayodhya’s power needs and reduce reliance on conventional sources.
  • Solar Rooftop Panels: Government buildings, including RML Awadh University, Agriculture University, and the district court, are adorned with rooftop solar panels, generating a total of 2.5 MW.
  • Solar Trees: 40 solar trees of 1 kW capacity and 18 of 2.5 kW capacity are lighting up various places in Ayodhya. These innovative structures not only provide illumination but also add an aesthetic touch.
  • Solar Streetlights: Over 800 solar streetlights illuminate the famous Ram Path, leading to the temple, and other parts of the city, promoting energy efficiency.

Beyond Solar:

  • Surya Tilak for Ram Lalla: Every Ram Navami, a unique system designed by CSIR and CBRI channels sunlight onto the forehead of Ram Lalla’s idol, symbolizing a “Surya Tilak.”
  • Electric Vehicle Charging Stations: Two solar-powered EV charging stations are being set up to encourage the use of electric vehicles and reduce carbon footprint.
  • Solar Cold Storage: A 6 MT solar cold storage facility at the mandi helps farmers store their produce efficiently and sustainably.

These initiatives showcase Ayodhya’s commitment to clean energy and environmental consciousness. The city aspires to become a model solar city, setting an example for others to follow.
