India is going through what is being referred to as a civilisational change in its efforts to recapture and blend its enviable old heritage with modern India.

On January 22, 2024, the holy city of Ayodhya in India witnessed a momentous occasion — the Pran Pratishtha ceremony of the Ram Temple. This is a rite or ceremony by which an idol is consecrated in a Hindu temple. Hymns and mantras are recited to invite the deity to be a resident guest, and the idol’s eye is opened for the first time.

It was not just a temple consecration; it was the culmination of a long-held dream, the dawn of a new era for Ayodhya. In the grand tapestry of cultural and religious heritage, the significance of Ram Temple stands as a testament to centuries of devotion and historical importance. The city is poised to be a pilgrimage centre, and it has seen record-breaking numbers of devotees since the consecration.
