Finally, the much-awaited day is here. The ceremony will be attended by Prime Minister Narendra Modi and 50 VIPs including Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath.
Here is all you need to know:
A 40-kg silver brick will symbolize the beginning of the construction. The proposed temple will be a grand three-story stone structure. It will have multiple pillars and domes. Reportedly the temple will be 161 feet tall and almost double the size of what was originally planned.
