By: Nitin Singh


On April 17th, during Ram Navami, the idol of Lord Ram Lalla at the Ayodhya Temple was illuminated by the rays of the sun, known as 'Surya Tilak'.

The 'Surya Tilak' effect was achieved through a sophisticated mechanism involving mirrors and lenses, as revealed by scientists who had tested the system the day before.

This marked the first Ram Navami celebration since the consecration of the Ram idol at the Ayodhya temple, which was inaugurated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on January 22nd.

The 'Surya Tilak' lit up the forehead of the Lord Ram Lalla idol, creating a symbolic and auspicious sight for worshippers and visitors.

A senior scientist from the Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR)-Central Building Research Institute (CBRI), Roorkee, provided details about the planned size of the tilak and its duration.

The planned size of the 'Surya Tilak' was 58 mm, and it remained illuminated on the forehead center for approximately three to three-and-a-half minutes.

During this period, the tilak experienced two minutes of full illumination, showcasing the precision and engineering behind the mechanism.

The event attracted attention not only from devotees but also from the wider community, highlighting the significance of the occasion.
