Ayodhya 16 July: The Ayodhya Development Authority (ADA) will construct 25 Ram Stambh (pillars) along a 17-kilometer stretch of arterial route between Sahadatganj and Lata Mangeshkar Chowk at Nayaghat in advance of the Ram temple’s completion next year.

“The pillars will feature intricate carved designs similar to those seen on the walls of popular temples throughout the country. These sculptures will serve as landmarks, capturing the essence of the city’s rich heritage, cultural, spiritual, and historical legacy,” ADA vice chairman Vishal Singh said on Sunday.

The administration has chosen Ram Path (13 km) and Dharam Path (4 km) for the makeover since they would be the primary road connecting the Lucknow-Ayodhya national highway to the Ram temple once it is completed.

The pillars will be 20 feet tall and 5 feet in diameter. A budget of Rs 2.10 crore has been allocated for this purpose. The authority has finished the design aspects, and an organisation with the expertise to handle such projects is being sought, according to Singh.

The pillars will be reinforced with stainless steel and constructed of fibre panel. To highlight the feature, a 10-mm glass lamp will be installed on top. A chakra meant to recreate the energy of the Sun will also be located at the summit of the pillars, as per ADA VC.
