Museum in Ayodhya to also display scientific aspects of temples architecture

Lucknow, Nov 8 (Representative) As the construction of the grand Lord Ram temple goes on at Shri Ram Janmabhoomi in Ayodhya in full swing in wake of its scheduled opening on January 22, the Uttar Pradesh government has also intensified efforts to build the Ram Temple Museum there. A dream project of Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, the Temple Museum will not only tell visitors about the sacred stories of all the major temples in India, but also introduce people to the basic concept of Sanatan Dharma. To be built under the supervision of the country’s famous architect, Vrinda Sumaya, the Temple Museum will also display scientific aspects of temples’ architecture. It may be noted that the construction of the Ram Temple is going on at a fast pace, and on January 22, after five centuries, Lord Ram will be seated in his new and grand temple.

It is believed that after the inauguration of Shri Ram Temple, there will be an unexpected increase in the number of devotees in Ayodhya; therefore, the government is focusing on developing all the facilities in Ayodhya for the convenience of people. The construction of the Temple Museum is part of the Modi-Yogi government’s mission to re-establish the glory of Sanatan Dharma, and is progressing at a fast pace. On the instructions of Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, the search for land for the temple museum to be built on approximately 50 acres on the banks of Saryu has intensified. This grand temple museum will be constructed under the supervision of the country’s famous architect, Vrinda Sumaya. Recently, Sumaya and her team inspected the three sites identified at Jamthara on the Saryu coast and another site identified at Rampur Halwara. One of these identified sites will be selected for the construction of the Temple Museum.

The Yogi government’s intention behind building this special museum, showcasing the greatness of Indian temples and their magnificent architecture, is to make the world, especially the youth, aware of the importance of Sanatan culture. The Temple Museum will educate the youth about why a temple was built at a particular place and what was the philosophy behind its construction. It will also display the technologies used in ancient India, as well as the worship methods and their importance for the people. The temples as well as the ancient Indian educational institutions that developed there, including monasteries and pithams, will showcase the exquisite architectural styles of the temples. The Temple Museum will be divided into 12 galleries. These galleries will mesmerise visitors with their effortless artistry, instilling a sense of pride and reverence among the spectators, while showcasing the scientific and philosophical aspects of the temples to people.
