A digital billboard of the proposed model of the Ram Temple in Ayodhya was lit up at New York’s popular Times Square on Wednesday, marking the celebration of the founding ceremony or Bhoomi Pujan of the grand temple.
Earlier in the day, Prime Minister Narendra Modi attended a historic event and laid the foundation stone – a first brick, made of silver – of the grand Ram Mandir in Ayodhya, paving way for its long-held construction on the site of Ram Janmabhoomi.
In a video shared by news agency ANI, chants of ‘Jai Shree Ram’ could be heard in front of the 3-D image displayed at the New York City landmark, resonating with the slogans raised at Ayodhya earlier today.
The massive display of Ram Mandir image was a proud moment for all the Indian-Americans living in the US. They took immense pride in who they were and the country they came from.
