Spanning 70 acres, the complex has a main temple area of 2.7 acres and a built-up space of around 57,000 square feet. Valued at Rs 1,800 crore, the entire structure is funded by the Shri Ram Janmabhoomi Teerth Kshetra Trust, which has received donations exceeding Rs 3,500 crore from India and abroad.

About Ram Lalla

The idol of Ram Lalla, meticulously carved by the acclaimed sculptor Arun Yogiraj from Karnataka, received its consecration in the temple during today's auspicious ceremony. The installation of this revered idol took place within the sacred sanctum sanctorum on January 18, in accordance with the prescribed rituals. The 51-inch idol, distinguished by its black color, portrays Lord Ram at the tender age of five.
