Construction at the site of Ayodhya’s proposed Ram Temple is in full swing and the changes are now visible in satellite imagery.
The foundation work of the structure that involves extraction of debris and addition of concrete layers is ongoing with workers and engineers deployed round the clock. The satellite imagery shows excavated land and debris extraction from the ground. According to the Shri Ram Janmabhoomi Teerth Kshetra, the body overseeing the construction of the temple, it has been advised by the experts to put additional concrete layers in the foundation.
“After discussions with experts regarding the foundation of Shri Ram Janmbhoomi Mandir, it has been decided that foundation work will be done using Roller Compacted Concrete (RCC) technique. A total of 40-45 layers of concrete will be put in 1,20,000 sq feet area. 4 layers have been completed,” the Trust said in a statement released on May 31.

According to the Trust, estimated debris of around 1,20,000 cubic meters had been already extracted and cleared.
Once the debris is extracted, large concrete layers are put in order to make the foundation stronger.
“It takes 4-5 days to put one layer of RCC. It is expected that the work will finish by October,” the Trust said.
Trust General Secretary Champat Rai said the architectural flaws in the design of the boundary wall have been corrected by acquiring the required land to make the changes.
