New Delhi, August 23, 2020: BJP leader Gajendra Parikh has sent 1-kilogram silver brick for Lord Ram Temple building in Ayodhya.
Former Chief Minister of Rajasthan, Vasundhara Raje posted the pictures of the brick and also said that she is happy that she too was able to do puja of the silver brick.
BJP Leader Gajendra has sent this silver brick in the memory of his ancestors and relatives.
The construction of Lord Ram Temple has already begun and the engineers from CBRI Roorkee, IIT Madras along with L&T have been roped in and are now testing the soil at the Temple site. The construction work is expected to finish in the next 36-40 months.
Lord Ram Temple will be built by adhering to India’s ancient and traditional construction techniques and it will also be built to sustain earthquakes, storms, and other natural calamities. Iron won’t be used in the construction of the Mandir, said the Shri Ram Janmbhoomi Teerth Kshetra in a statement.
For the construction of the Temple, copper plates will be used to fuse stone blocks with each other. The plates should be 18 inches long, 30 mm wide & 3 mm in depth.10,000 such plates may be required in total structure. The Shri Ram Janmbhoomi Teerth Kshetra has called upon Rambhakts to donate such copper plates to the trust.
Donors can also engrave family names, place of origin, or their community temples’ names on these plates. This way, the copper plates will not only symbolize the unity of this country but also be a testament to the entire country’s contribution towards Mandir construction, the trust has said.
