The building of the Ram Lalla temple in Ayodhya is highly dependent on Karnataka

The state of Karnataka has made major contributions to the Ayodhya Ram temple, which is renowned for its enormous scope and the combined efforts of thousands of people. Notably, the state is home to at least three important people managing different facets of the temple’s construction, and Karnataka provides the temple’s very foundation.The only South Indian seer among the 15 members of the Sri Rama Janmabhoomi Trust, who is in charge of building the Ayodhya Ram Mandir, is Vishwaprasanna Thirtha, the seer of Pejawar.

Thirtha will play a significant role in the January 22 dedication of the Ram Lalla statue. The seer has faithfully traveled between Udupi and Ayodhya to oversee the temple’s construction since joining the trust two years ago.Agarbattis, gold chains, silver bricks, and sadahalli marbleSadahalli Marble, which was mined in Devanahalli close to Kempegowda International Airport, has been very important. Officials from the VHP state department estimate that between 700 and 800 tonnes of this marble have been shipped to Ayodhya specifically for this project.

In addition, 150 kg of agarbatti, silver bricks, and even gold chains were donated by Karnataka with the intention of decorating the Ram Lalla idol in Ayodhya.Anjanadri Hills birthplace of HanumanKarnataka has been inspired to contemplate a comparable strategy for the development of Anjanadri Hills, the birthplace of Hanuman, a devout disciple of Lord Ram, by the design of Ayodhya Ram Mandir, which is intended to represent the birthplace of Lord Rama. There are claims that the stones from Anjanadri were used for the Ayodhya installation, creating a symbolic link. Since the Ayodhya temple was dedicated, there has been a noticeable surge in the number of tourists visiting the hills, especially from North India. Similar to the Ayodhya Ram Mandir’s blueprint, the Karnataka government allocated Rs 100 crore in its previous budget for the development of Anjanadri Hills.
