Ram Mandir at Ayodhya: VHP wants HM Amit Shah, CM Yogi on trust, temple as per Nyas model

As per the model prepared at the Nyas workshop in Karsevakpuram, the temple, once built, will be 268 ft long, 140 ft wide and 128 ft high, from the ground to the Shikhara and a total of 212 pillars will be used.

After the Supreme Court of India ruled in favour of the Ram Janmabhoomi Nyas to pave the way for building a Ram Temple at the site, the key Hindu organisations involved have already started considering solid steps in the direction.

As per a report in The Hindu, the Vishwa Hindu Parishad, one of the Hindu organisations that have been at the forefront of mobilising support for the Ram Temple movement all these years, has expressed that Home Minister Amit Shah and UP Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath be included in the Ram Temple trust that is to be set up by the central government within three month’s times.

The Ramjanmabhoomi Nyas had also stated that UP CM Yogi Adityanath should head the temple trust, not as CM of the state, but as the Mahant of Gorakhpeeth.

VHP spokesperson Sharad Sharma has reportedly also stated that they want the central government’s trust to finalise the design of the grand Ram Temple as per the model prepared by the VHP at the Ram Mandir workshop at Karsevakpuram in Ayodhya, a short distance away from the Ram Janmabhoomi.

The Ramjanmabhoomi Nyas has been running a workshop at Ayodhya’s Karsevakpuram since 1990 where craftsmen and workers have been constantly working on the temple structures.

The stone carving work has been continuing uninterrupted since the day te workshop was started. As per reports, it even went on when the RSS and the VHP were banned by the government after the Babri Masjid demolition.

Recently, the Nyas had decided to stop the work at the workshop in anticipation for the Supreme Court verdict. The extensive workshop also houses a big wooden model of the proposed plan for the Ram Mandir at thRamam Janmabhoomi site.

Devotees visiting Ayodhya throng to see the Ram Mandir model kept in the Nyas workshop. Sharma added, “Over these nearly 30 years since the inception of the workshop, we have been taking the design of this temple to people’s homes through various means of communication. Devotees too have taken pictures and videos and spread the word. So, that is the dominant image of a Ram temple in the consciousness of the people”.

He expressed hope that not only the temple trust includes representation from the Ram Janmabhoomi Nyas, but also considers the temple model prepared by the Nyas as the design for the actual temple at Ram Janmabhoomi.

As per the model prepared at the Nyas workshop in Karsevakpuram, the temple, once built, will be 268 ft long, 140 ft wide and 128 ft high, from the ground to the Shikhara and a total of 212 pillars will be used.

It is notable here that so far, several Hindu organisations, including the Akhil Bharatiya Akhara Parishad, have stated that UP CM Yogi Adityanath should be there in the temple trust, not only as the CM, but mainly because he is the sitting Peethadheeshwar of Gorakhpeeth, an institution that has been instrumental in the Ram Janmabhoomi movement and has millions of devotees all over India, and Nepal.
