Lucknow, Nov 8: The construction of the grand Lord Ram temple in Ayodhya is progressing rapidly, with its scheduled opening on January 22. Simultaneously, the Uttar Pradesh government is working diligently on the Ram Temple Museum, a dream project of Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath.

The Temple Museum aims to not only narrate the sacred stories of major temples in India but also introduce people to the basic concepts of Sanatan Dharma. Under the guidance of renowned architect Vrinda Sumaya, the museum will showcase the scientific aspects of temple architecture.

As the Ram Temple construction gains momentum, the government is focusing on developing facilities in Ayodhya to accommodate the expected surge in devotees after the inauguration. The construction of the Temple Museum aligns with the Modi-Yogi government’s mission to re-establish the glory of Sanatan Dharma.

Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has directed efforts to identify suitable land for the Temple Museum, which is expected to cover approximately 50 acres on the banks of the Saryu River. Architect Vrinda Sumaya and her team recently inspected three potential sites at Jamthara on the Saryu coast and another site at Rampur Halwara.

The grand museum will comprise 12 galleries, each showcasing the greatness of Indian temples, their magnificent architecture, and the rich cultural heritage of Sanatan Dharma. The galleries will educate visitors on the philosophy behind temple construction, the technologies used in ancient India, worship methods, and the significance of temples in people’s lives.

The Temple Museum is designed to create awareness, especially among the youth, about the importance of Sanatan culture. It will highlight the architectural styles of ancient temples, as well as showcase the temples’ scientific and philosophical aspects. The government envisions the museum as a pride-inducing and revered space that instills a sense of cultural identity among visitors.
