3 lakh devotees visit Ram Temple in Ayodhya on Day 2, Yogi Adityanath holds meeting to review security

Ayodhya/IBNS: Braving the cold weather and clad in warm clothes, around three lakh devotees lined up outside the newly inaugurated Ram temple on Wednesday morning amid tight security arrangements.

The temple opened its doors to the public on Tuesday, a day after the grand consecration ceremony.

Around 5 lakh devotees visited the temple on day one following which the temple was closed to visitors.

Amid the huge rush of devotees in Ayodhya, Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath held a meeting with officials in Lucknow to review the steps taken for crowd management, an official statement from the chief minister's office said.

He advised VIPs to inform the state government or the Shri Ram Janmabhoomi Teerth Kshetra Trust at least a week before their visits.

The UP CM also directed officials to stop additional roadways buses to Ayodhya for now.

He inspected the arrangements and deputed senior officials to ensure smooth and easy darshan for the devotees.

On Tuesday, Adityanath conducted an aerial inspection of the Ram temple site and the city as crowds began to build up at the temple complex.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi Monday inaugurated the much-awaited Ram Temple and unveiled the Ram Lalla idol in Uttar Pradesh's Ayodhya.

He was accompanied by RSS chief Mohan Bhagawat, Uttar Pradesh Governor Anandiben Patel, and 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.
