Overwhelmed by the darshan of Ramlala, Rajinikanth said, "For many years I wanted to visit Ayodhya Dham and finally today the wish of seeing Lord Shri Ram has been fulfilled. I was very happy to see the construction work of the temple. If the Lord wishes, I will come again after the construction of the temple is completed."
During this, the film actor was also honoured by giving the design of the temple and wearing Ramnami clothes.
