Narad Bhattarai from Manipur is set to play a crucial role as the Chief Archak in the highly anticipated Pran Pratistha Mahotsav of the Ram Mandir in Ayodhya. The 31-year-old Vedic scholar, hailing from Serou Part II in Manipur’s Kakching district, holds an MA degree in Vedacharya. Currently, Narad Bhattarai serves as a Ved Teacher at Shri Ram Ved Vidyalaya in Kar Sevak Puram, Ayodhya.

The appointment of Narad Bhattarai as Chief Archak was made by the Shri Ram Janmabhoomi Teerth Kshetra Trust (SRJBTK). Champat Rai, the Mahamantri of Shri Ram Janmabhoomi Teerth Kshetra, conveyed in a letter that the young Ved scholar’s appointment had received approval from Vidhwan Saydheya Ganeshwar Shatri Drabir and Saydheya Lakhsmikant Dixit of Kashi.

The temple measures 380 feet in length (east-west), 250 feet in width, and 161 feet in height. It is a three-storied structure with 392 pillars and 44 doors, each floor being 20 feet tall.

The temple’s basement sanctum sanctorum houses the childhood form of Lord Shri Ram (the idol of Shri Ram Lalla), while the first floor is dedicated to Shri Ram Darbar adorned with statues of deities, gods, and goddesses. Notably, the temple avoids the use of iron and concrete on the ground. Below the ground, the sanctum sanctorum is constructed with a 14-meter-thick layer of roller-compacted concrete (RCC), providing it with the appearance of artificial rock.
