Ram Temple will hold piece of history from Sri Lanka
A stone from Sita Eliya, the place in Sri Lanka where Goddess Sita is believed to have been held captive, will be used in the Ram Temple construction in Ayodhya and serve as a pillar of strength for India-Lanka ties, the Indian High Commission in Colombo said. The stone is expected to be brought to India by Sri Lankan High Commissioner to India Milinda Moragoda.
Here is what Milind Moragoda tweeted
A temple is dedicated to Goddess Sita in Sita Eliya
A temple in Sita Eliya is dedicated to Goddess Sita and is said to mark the place where she was held captive by the Lankan king Ravana and where she regularly prayed for Lord Rama to rescue her. En route to Hakgala Gardens, the vibrant and colorful temple is known as the Seetha Amman Temple.
PM laid brick for the Ram Temple construction last year
Prime Minister Narendra Modi had last year performed the bhoomi pujan of the Supreme Court-mandated Ram temple in Ayodhya, bringing to fruition the BJP's mandir movement that defined its politics for three decades and took it to the heights of power.
More than 400 kilograms of silver bricks have been donated
The Print had reported earlier that more than 400 kilograms of silver bricks have been donated for the mandir so far. Members of the Trust, Shri Ram Janmabhoomi Tirtha Kshetra, which has taken charge of the temple construction, appealed to the donors through the publication not to donate any more bricks as their bank lockers have no more space to store them.
Cash worth Rs. 1,600 crore collected so far
The trust is also responsible for the collection of donations for Ram Temple construction in Ayodhya. The publication had also reported that so far the trust has received Rs. 1,600 crore cash donations so far.
Supreme Court had allotted disputed land for temple construction
On November 9, 2019, a five-judge constitutional bench of the Supreme Court headed by former Chief Justice of India, Ranjan Gogoi, unanimously announced that the disputed 2.77 acres of land will be allotted to the Trust for the construction of Ram Temple. The bench also stated that an alternate five acres of land should be allotted for Babri Masjid construction.
