Uttar Pradesh CM Yogi Adityanath has said that a gigantic statue of lord Ram would be built along Saryu river in Ayodhya. He also said that that the statue will become part of Ayodhya's identity. He made the announcement a day after he declared that Faizabad district will be renamed Ayodhya.
"The idea is on our mind. We will discuss it further. I saw two spots today. Lord Ram will be worshipped at the temple, but a statue that can be seen from afar will also be there. We are moving ahead with the project. Surveys are being conducted and architects have suggested various designs," Adityanath said.
