The residents of Ayodhya will resound conch shells and thaalis 10 minutes before the official timings of Ram Mandir’s bhoomi pujan.
With Bhoomi Pujan ceremony for the construction of Ram temple just a week away, donations from various quarters have already started pouring in.
After the Bhoomi Pujan ceremony to be attended by PM Narendra Modi on August 5, the temple construction would start. Meanwhile, as part of preparations for Bhoomi Pujan event, a team of 500 sanitary workers has been deployed to deck up the temple town.
While spiritual guru and story narrator (Katha vachak) Morari Bapu has announced a donation of Rs 5 crore from his Vyaspeeth to Sri Ram Janmabhoomi Tirath Kshetra Trust, Prince Yakub Habeebuddin Tucy, a self-proclaimed descendent of Mughals, has offered a gold brick weighing one kg to the PM towards temple construction.
Shri Ram Janmbhoomi Teerth Kshetra Trust urges all Shri Rambhakts not to get anxious to reach Ayodhya, & instead, watch the live broadcast of the Pujan on Doordarshan from their homes. They may welcome this grand & divine occasion by lighting diyas at their house in the evening.

Morari Bapu had announced the donation during an online spiritual talk on Monday and appealed to his followers to contribute voluntarily.
However, the Shree Ram Janmabhoomi Teerth Kshetra Trust has already made it clear that it was open to receive donations from anyone who wanted to contribute towards the temple construction. In its last meeting in Ayodhya, the trust general secretary Champat Rai had made it clear that the temple would be constructed through the donations.
