At 12 noon on Ram Navmi, the sun’s rays will fall on the deity for two to two and a half minutes in full glow and partially thereafter for another two and a half minutes, as per Govind Rao, senior RSS leader.

During his visit to Ayodhya for Deepotsav celebration on October 23, 2022, PM Narendra Modi had suggested to the Trust members that the sanctum sanctorum of the temple should be constructed in such a way that the sun’s rays fell directly on it on Ram Navami,like the Konark Sun temple in Odisha.
