Temple Trust Credits PM Modi for Inspiration Behind ‘Surya Tilak’ Ritual at Ayodhya Ram Temple

Ayodhya: Today, on the auspicious occasion of Ram Navami, the Ram Temple in Ayodhya witnessed a historic ‘Surya Tilak’ ceremony, inspired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visionary concept. Nripendra Mishra, chairman of the Ram Temple Construction Committee, revealed that the Prime Minister conceived the idea during the final stages of the temple’s construction. The objective was simple yet profound: to ensure that every Ram Navami, the first rays of the sun would illuminate the forehead of the Ram Lalla idol in the temple’s sanctum sanctorum.

The realization of PM Modi’s vision involved a collaborative effort, with experts and scientists from Maharashtra and Karnataka joining forces. Utilizing state-of-the-art technology, a specialized apparatus was developed to precisely target a 5.8-centimeter ray of sunlight onto the deity’s forehead. This remarkable feat was made possible by ten distinguished Indian scientists stationed at the Ram Mandir, ensuring the seamless execution of the ritual.

Following the ceremony, Prime Minister Modi took to social media to share his joy, describing the moment as “emotional and incomparable.” He expressed his privilege in witnessing the much-awaited ‘Surya Tilak’ of Ram Lalla in Ayodhya, highlighting its significance in illuminating the path towards a developed India.

The development of the ‘Surya Tilak’ mechanism saw collaboration between scientists from the Central Building Research Institute (CBRI), Roorkee, and the Indian Institute of Astrophysics (IIAP), Bengaluru. This collaborative effort underscores India’s prowess in leveraging scientific innovation to uphold its cultural heritage and traditions.
