Prime Minister Narendra Modi arrived in Lucknow a short while ago for the ‘bhumi pujan’ of the Ram Mandir.

He will now proceed to ‘Shree Ram Janmabhoomi’.

The ‘bhumi pujan’ of the grand temple in Ayodhya, at a spot where devotees believe that Lord Ram was born, is said to take place at 12:40 pm, which is the ‘muhurat’ for the foundation stone laying ceremony.

Apart from Modi, Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adityanath and around 200 invitees will attend the Ram Mandir ‘bhumi pujan’.
