Nine bricks sent by devotees from across the world were laid for a Ram temple in Ayodhya today as a ''bhoomi pujan'' or groundbreaking ceremony was held at Ram Janmabhoomi.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi participated in the Ram temple rituals, where a priest explained the significance of the nine bricks laid to mark the start of the temple construction.

"Nine bricks are kept here... these were sent by devotees of Lord Ram from around the world in 1989. There are 2,75,000 such bricks, out of which 100 bricks with 'Jai Shri Ram' engraving have been taken," the priest said.

Soil from more than 2,000 pilgrimage sites and water from more than 100 sacred rivers were brought for the rituals.

PM Modi, after laying a 40-kg silver brick for the Ram temple, described it as an "emotional moment" for the country and added that "every heart is illuminated today".
