Devotees break through security at Shri Ram Janmabhoomi Temple in Ayodhya

A large number of devotees, both locals and visitors from other states, gathered outside the main gates for hours since late on Monday night, waiting to enter the premises of Ram Mandir.

Visuals surfaced of devotees breaking through security barriers at Shri Janmabhoomi Temple in Ayodhya.

On January 23, 2024, the Shri Ram Janmabhoomi Temple in Ayodhya experienced a significant security breach as a multitude of devotees forced their way through the barriers.

This incident occurred the day after the temple was opened to the public for darshan, following the Pran Pratishtha ceremony conducted by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

The temple, which stands on a site with a tumultuous history, has been a focal point of religious and cultural significance. It is built on the location revered as the birthplace of Lord Ram, a central figure in Hinduism, and replaces a 16th-century mosque demolished in 1992, an event that led to widespread riots and loss of life. The new temple’s architecture follows the traditional Nagara style common in northern India.

The Pran Pratishtha ceremony, marking the consecration of the temple, took place on January 22, 2024, signaling the near completion of the temple, with full completion expected by December 2024. The temple now welcomes visitors during two daily time slots, and the installation of the Ram Lalla idol, a 51-inch tall figure crafted by Mysuru-based sculptor Arun Yogiraj, was a highlight of the inauguration festivities.
