Shri Ram Janmbhoomi Teerth Kshetra, the trust that has been given the responsibility to bring along the structure of the Ram Temple in Ayodhya, recently released some images of the projected structure. We bring to you those and many other pictures to give you a glimpse of how the Ram Temple will look like upon completion in three years.

As opposed to the earlier proposed design, the Ram Temple will be much larger in proportion. While three new domes come as an addition to the design, the height has also been increased by 20 feet.

With the update in design, the temple premises can now accommodate more devotees — around one lakh at a time.

Reports also suggest that gold and silver will be used in designing the main doors of the temple.

Each floor of the temple will have a theme related to Lord Ram. Right from the glimpse of his childhood in the form of jhaanki to Ram Darbar — every element will be incorporated.
