On Friday, Champat Rai, the General Secretary of the Ram Janmabhoomi Teerth Kshetra, reportedly informed that the structure of the majestic Ram Mandir will be resistant to earthquakes and can withstand natural calamities for about 1000 years. This revelation was made during a press briefing at Karswakpuram in Ayodhya, just two days after the Bhoomi Pujan event that has held on August 5.
As per the report, Champat Rai stated that the temple will be earthquake resistant as the pillars for the structure will be as deep as bridges built on rivers. He added that the foundation of the temple will be such that it can withstand other natural calamities for 1000 years. Rai informed that Larson and Turbo, the company responsible for the construction of the Ram Mandir, briefed him that the foundation plan is in its final phase and will be ready soon. According to reports, the foundation for the Ram Mandir will be 200 feet deep.
