Devotees sitting in queue outside Ram temple
After Pran Pratistha, the queue of devotees to have darshan of Ramlala is not showing any signs of breaking. While on the first day on Tuesday, more than 5 lakh devotees had darshan of their deity, on Wednesday morning too, more than 20 thousand devotees were seen standing in the queue for darshan. Even before the doors of the temple opened in the morning, queues more than a kilometer long were seen outside the entry gate. It was fortunate that the police and temple management people were seen active since morning.
Due to this there was no chaos anywhere. At present, Ram devotees are standing in the queue waiting for the doors of the temple to open and their turn to have darshan. In view of the situation prevailing on the first day on Tuesday, top police and administration officials are camping in the premises. According to officials, Ram devotees had started queuing up for darshan since midnight. By morning the number of devotees increased to more than 20 thousand.

However, the police and volunteers deployed at the spot with great difficulty made all the devotees queue up and appealed to them to remain patient. According to the police, three queues of devotees have been formed for the darshan of Ramlala today. That means three people are being given entry from all three lines simultaneously. And after they move forward, the next three people are being sent inside. According to the temple management, today is the second day of Ramlala’s darshan.
Shringar Aarti took place at four in the morning
Lord was woken up as per the rituals at four in the morning and after taking bath, his Shringa Aarti was performed. After Mangala Aarti at seven in the morning, the court of God was opened for his devotees. After this, the devotees came in queue and worshiped Ramlala under the dignity of Ramlala. According to the temple management, there is still a large crowd of devotees outside the temple. All the devotees are desperate to get a glimpse of Ramlala. In such a situation, to maintain order, all the devotees are being asked to follow decorum.
CM is also keeping an eye
On the other hand, in Lucknow, Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath is also taking moment-to-moment reports from the temple management and administrative officials. To maintain order, he has sent Chief Secretary to other senior officers to Ayodhya. He has instructed the officials that the darshan of Ramlala should be done well. Since the devotees were away from their idol for five hundred and fifty years, the desperation is natural. In such an environment, the administration has also been instructed to act with restraint.
