Nirmohi Akhara builds ‘Ram Lalla’ temple in Haryana | Chandigarh News

SONIPAT (HARYANA): Nirmohi Akhara, who struggled for 200 years for Ayodhya’s Ram temple and was one of the main plaintiffs in the Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid title suits, has built a grand temple of ‘Ram Lalla’ in Khanda village of Sonipat district in Haryana.

On the occasion of ‘Ram Navami’, the idol of ‘Ram Lalla’ was placed in the ‘garbha griha’ (sanctum sanctorum) of the temple amid chants of ‘Jai Shri Ram’. The 416-old ‘mutt’ was renovated and a grand temple was constructed. The saints of ‘Nirmohi Akhara’, who arrived from across the country, participated in the 7-day long ‘pran pratishtha’ rituals.

The idol of the childlike form of Lord Rama, which is adorning the sanctum sanctorum of the Ram temple in Sonipat, is carved from white ‘Makrana’ marble by a Jaipur-based sculptor Satyanarayan Pandey. Satyanarayan Pandey is among the three sculptors who sculpted the idol of ‘Ram Lalla’ at Ayodhya’s Ram temple. Twelve scenes of Ramayana are depicted in golden arches around the idol of ‘Ram Lalla’ which is prepared by Saint Sadhvi Kamal Vaishnav of Nirmohi Akhara.
