Watch: Ram temple digital billboard runs in New York's Times Square

A billboard of Ayodhya's Ram Temple was seen at Times Square in New York.

The billboard appeared on day of temple's foundation stone laying ceremony.

The digital billboard featured Lord Ram next to the upcoming temple in Ayodhya.

Earlier, at a grand ceremony in Uttar Pradesh's Ayodhya, Prime Minister Narendra Modi did the 'bhumi pujan', and laid the foundation stone of the new Ram temple.

After offering prayers at Hanumangarhi and the idols of 'Ram lalla', or the child deity, PM Modi participated in the bhumi pujan rituals.

All the participants, including the PM and the priests, wore face masks and observed social distancing norms due to the raging Covid-19 pandemic.

RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat and UP CM Yogi Adityanath also attended the grand ceremony.

Attendance at the event was limited due to the outbreak.

The construction of the Ram temple is beginning 9 months after the Supreme Court handed the Mandir side the disputed site while awarding an alternate plot to the Babri Masjid litigants.
