National, 17th January 2024, 6:00AM IST: SriMandir, India’s first devotional app unveils Ramotsav by SriMandir, on the auspicious occasion of the Ram Mandir (temple) inauguration in Ayodhya by Hon’ble Prime Minister of India. The Elevation Capital and Peak XV backed startup is set to illuminate the city with the glow of more than 100,000 diyas during a week-long celebration from 18th – 24th January’24 at Raj Dwar temple, Ayodhya. As part of Ram Mandir celebrations, Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi along with RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat and UP Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath will lead a Prana Pratishtha ceremony on 22nd January’24, in presence of over 4,000 sants (priests) and 2,500 eminent citizens. As part of the festivities, SriMandir will organise pujas and pathas in Ayodhya, enabling participants from around the world to engage from the comfort of their homes in the spiritual rituals, virtually. As part of the Deepotsav initiative on the app, devotees globally can engage in diya lighting, illuminating Ayodhya with 1, 5, 11, or 21 diyas in their name to extend a pious welcome to Lord Ram. Recognizing that several senior citizens have waited for many decades for this moment but may be too old to travel to Ayodhya to witness the consecration in person, Srimandir is offering to light up to 10,000 diyas free of cost for users above the age of 60. The team at SriMandir will capture these moments and share personalised videos of the lit diyas with the participating devotees.
