Ahead of the consecration ceremony for the Ram temple in Ayodhya, the Madhya Pradesh government announced January 22 as a ‘dry day,’ joining five other states – Uttar Pradesh, Assam, Uttarakhand, Chhattisgarh, and Rajasthan – in prohibiting the sale of liquor on this day.

Gifts from Neighboring Regions
With just a week remaining for the ceremony, gifts and offerings from various regions are pouring in for the Ayodhya temple. Gujarat has sent a nagaru (temple drum) crafted by the All India Dabgar Samaj in Dariyapur, which will find its place in the temple courtyard.

Sacred water and soil from different rivers and seas have reached Ayodhya. Fruits and ornaments for Ram Lalla (Lord Ram) have been sent from places like Mithila, Jodhpur, Chhattisgarh, Nepal, and more. Janakpur in Nepal, the birthplace of Sita, has dispatched over 3,000 gifts for Lord Ram, including silver shoes, ornaments, and clothes.

India’s neighbor, Sri Lanka, has presented a rock from the Ashok Vatika, a garden mentioned in the epic Ramayana.

Tributes from Washington
In a unique celebration, over 200 Indian American Tesla car owners organized a musical show in a Maryland suburb of Washington DC on Saturday to honor the Ram Mandir Pran Pratishtha ceremony.

Direct Flight to Ayodhya
To enhance connectivity to Ayodhya, the Ministry of Civil Aviation has initiated direct flights from Ahmedabad and Delhi to Ayodhya. Additional direct flights from the Maharshi Valmiki International Airport to Mumbai, Bangalore, and Kolkata are set to commence soon.
