After the long legal battle, the second largest Hindu temple in the world is going to be ready in Ayodhya, the “Sri Ram Janmabhoomi” site of Uttar Pradesh. All preparations have been completed in this regard. On August 5, 2020, the first brick of the foundation will be laid to start construction of the temple in the hands of Prime Minister “Narendra Modi”.
It is pleasant that earlier on 11 February 2018, PM Modi laid the foundation of another Hindu temple, which is to be completed this year. The special thing is that this temple will be the largest Hindu temple in the world. Explain that the foundation stone of the Hindu temple was laid in Abu Dhabi, the capital of the United Arab Emirates.
This temple is being prepared by Indian craftsmen, which was to be completed by 2020 this year, But due to the corona transition period, it may take some more time to be fully prepared. However, it is a matter of pride for us that the construction of a temple at such a place is a big thing in itself, where all the citizens except the workers are of Muslim religion.
