Ahead of the cornerstone laying ceremony for Ram Temple, several areas of Ayodhya were illuminated on Saturday with diyas (earthen lamps) and colored lights.
According to state potters, around 1.25 lakh diyas were ordered for the much-anticipated ceremony on August 5.
Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath will travel to Ayodhya on August 2 to provide an update on preparations for the Ram Temple cornerstone ceremony.
Construction of the Ram Temple will begin after the foundation stone ceremony.
The Supreme Court on November 9 last year ordered the central government to hand over the Ayodhya site for the construction of the Ram Temple.
