‘A new atmosphere is prevailing in the entire country as we celebrate the birth anniversary of Lord Ram in his own home after 500 years and this is a culmination of centuries of devotion and generations of sacrifice,” he said at the rally.

The ‘Surya tilak’ of Ram Lalla in Ayodhya was done at noon on Wednesday on the occasion of Ram Navami, using an elaborate mechanism involving mirrors and lenses by which sunbeams were directed on the forehead of Ram idol.

‘After my Nalbari rally, I had the privilege of witnessing the wonderful and incomparable moment of Surya Tilak of Ram Lalla in Ayodhya. Like crores of Indians, this is a very emotional moment for me,” the Prime Minister posted on ‘X’ along with two photographs of him watching the ceremony on a tablet.
