Ayodhya Ram Temple Model Beams In New York's Iconic Times Square
An image of Lord Ram and a 3D portrait of the model of the grand Ram Temple in Ayodhya beamed on a giant billboard in the iconic Times Square in New York to commemorate the temple's groundbreaking ceremony today.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi said "golden history" was written as he launched the construction of the Ram temple in Ayodhya. Amid the chanting of shlokas, PM Modi consecrated the very first bricks for the temple at the spot where many believe Lord Ram was born.
The largest high-definition digital display of Lord Ram is one of the most expensive digital billboards of the Hindu deity at Times Square, reported news agency ANI.
