SunstarTV Bureau: The most awaited Ram temple in Ayodhya is going to be built in around three years and the construction cost of the project will exceed Rs 1100 core.
Swami Govind Dev Giri Maharaj, treasurer of Ram Janmabhoomi Tirath Kshetra Nyas said, “The main temple will be built in three to three and a half years and will cost Rs 300-400 core. The expenditure on the development of the entire 70 acre land there will exceed Rs 1100 core”.
Maharaj said he arrived at these figures after consulting experts involved in the Ram temple construction project. However the trust has not come out with an official statement so far on the expenditure involved in the project.
“It was possible for us to raise funds (for the temple construction) from some corporate people. Some (corporate) families had approached us, requesting us to hand over the (temple) designs and assuring us they will complete the temple project, but I humbly declined that request,” he said.
Even the President of India Ram Nath Kovind had contributed Rs 500,100 for the Ram temple construction at Ayodhya, last week.
