Two Stones From Nepal Reach Ayodhya

 February 3, 2023  

Ayodhya — Two stones from Nepal, believed to be used for the construction of Lord Ram’s idol, arrived in Ayodhya.
Priests and locals welcomed the holy stones and performed rituals before handing them over to the Shri Ram Janmabhoomi Teerth Kshetra Trust.

The stones, known as Shaligrams, were found in the Kali Gandaki River in Nepal and are expected to be used for the idols of Lord Ram and Janaki.

The stones, weighing 18 tons and 16 tons, have been approved both technically and scientifically for use in the construction. The stone convoy passed through Pipraun Girjasthan in Madhubani, Bihar, and made night stops in Muzaffarpur and Gorakhpur before reaching Ayodhya.

A bow is also expected to be sent from the Janaki Temple in the future, as specified by the Ram temple Trust.
