In Ayodhya, there is a tradition that on the fifth day of Shukla Paksha in Shravan month every year, Jhulanoutsav is celebrated in all Math temples. Every year, wooden swings were used for the celebrations, but now as Bhavya Ram Mandir is being constructed in the city, it will be celebrated with grandeur. Ram Lalla will remain seated on the swing from Panchmi to the last day of Shravan month that is on August 22.
Dr Anil Mishra, a member of Shri Ram Janmabhoomi Teerth Kshetra Trust, said that a silver swing had been bought for Jhulanoutsav. Shri Ram Lalla will sit on the swing with his brothers on Panchmi, and the festival will be celebrated with rituals.
