Modi became first PM to offer prayers at Ram Lalla temple

Thursday, 06 August 2020 | Biswajeet Banerjee | Ayodhya

Prostrating before Ram Lalla before entering the temple Narendra Modi became the first prime minister of the country to offer prayers at the Ram Lalla temple in Ayodhya, just before the commencement of ‘’bhoomi pujan’’ for construction of a grand Ram temple.
At the Ram Lalla temple, the PM offered flowers to the God and other deities and performed ‘’aarti’’ besides taking a ‘’parikrama’’ of the temple.
Before entering the temple he prostrated before the deity. He was alone inside the temple as Chief Minister Adityanath Yogi waited outside the sanctum sanctorum.
Later, he planted a Parijat (Indian night jasmine) sapling  and watered it. The PM also talked to the main priest about the sapling.
Prior to this, the PM also worshipped at the Hanumangarhi temple for around 8 minutes and performed a  brief ‘’aarti’’ with Ramdhun playing in the background.
Accompanied by the UP Chief Minister, who is the Mahant of Goraksh Peth of Gorakhpur, the PM went for a parikarma of the temple as per the ritual.
Sri Gaddinsheen Premdas Ji Maharaj, head priest of Hanumangarhi temple  after the end of the puja gifted a headgear, a silver crown and a stole with the name of Lord Ram written on it to the PM.
The PM, in his traditional ‘’pitambari’’ outfit and a face mask, was silent throughout his visit to the temple. It was after 29 years that Modi visited Hanumangarhi temple. He visited last here in 1991 during the Ram temple movement.
Modi reached the Saket college ground exactly at 1130 hrs in the morning to lay the foundation of the grand Ram temple and attend the Bhoomi pujan.   
At the helipad, he was greeted by Yogi Adityanath along with Trust members and officials.
