Doors Of Ayodhya’s Ram Mandir Closed Temporarily; Will Reopen At 2 PM

It was on January 22 when devotees in India and abroad celebrated the Pran Pratishtha ceremony and inauguration of Ram Mandir in Ayodhya. Pilgrims from different places headed to this holy city to visit the temple and do the darshan of Lord Ram. Visitors rushed to Ayodhya ahead of the consecration ceremony and went to the mandir today. Sadly, the sacred temple had to be closed temporarily for devotees.

The doors of the Ram Temple in Ayodhya have been closed temporarily on Tuesday. The Ayodhya Police and local administration decided to pause the darshan of Ram Lalla for devotees after reporting a massive crowd just a day after the historical consecration ceremony. Considering the safety of people, the concerned authorities took the step. The doors to the mandir opened for devotees today and a humongous crowd of people is being witnessed.

Lakhs of pilgrims have been waiting for hours to enter the Ram Mandir and seek blessings from Lord Ram but the administration had to pause the entry of devotees seeing the massive rush. They have installed barricades on the roads so that people cannot cross those and move towards the mandir as of now. Highways that are coming within the direction of this place have also been blocked by the authorities, according to a report by The Live Nagpur. In addition to all these, entry of vehicles is not allowed as of now.

Visitors started lining outside the Ram Mandir in the wee hours of Tuesday. They have been waiting for so long to witness the glory of the temple and pray to Lord Ram.
