A priest from Varanasi, Lakshmi Kant Dixit, is entrusted with the responsibility of performing the main rituals during the consecration ceremony on January 22. The Amrit Mahotsav, celebrated from January 14 to January 22, adds a festive touch to the momentous occasion.
Ayodhya’s Grandeur Welcomes Devotees
