Devotees in large swathes thronged the Ram Temple in Ayodhya town on Tuesday after its doors were opened for all to offer prayers to the deity, a day after the grand consecration ceremony led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

According to reports, devotees gathered at the gates of the temple since 3 am with the anticipation of getting a glimpse of the Ram idol.

The gates of the temple were opened at 7 am.

Darshan timing

Devotees can visit the temple from 7 am to 11.30 am and from 2 pm to 7 pm.

Shri Ram Janmabhoomi Teerth Kshetra website said the quota for Darshan and Arti services has been 'fully consumed'.

The website mentioned devotees should follow it to find the upcoming darshan quota release date and schedule.

Meanwhile, donations made through Bharat Bill Payment System towards the Ayodhya Ram Temple had doubled every two hours on Sunday, reported NDTV Profit.

The number of donations, made via UPI, as well as the amount are doubling every couple of hours, allowing devotees to connect with the inauguration digitally, despite not being physically present, a person who knows about the development told the news channel.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi participates in consecration of Ram Temple

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday (January 22, 2024) inaugurated the much-awaited Ram Temple and unveiled the Ram Lalla idol in Uttar Pradesh's Ayodhya.

Modi was accompanied by RSS chief Mohan Bhagawat, Uttar Pradesh Governor Anandiben Patel, Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath at the rituals, which were performed by the Prime Minister.

From celebrities to politicians and seers, Ayodhya was overwhelmed by people from far and wide to witness a momentous religious event that will mark the course of Indian politics apart in coming days besides being a watershed event in Hinduism. Many of the rich and famous arrived in private jets for the ceremony.

A majority of Hindus claimed that the site was the birthplace of Lord Ram before Muslim Mughals razed a temple at the spot to build the Babri Masjid.

In a landmark verdict in 2019, the Supreme Court handed over the land to the Hindu community and ordered to allot a separate plot to Muslims.
