Ram Lalla idol arrived at the Ram Mandir complex on Wednesday night. Now it will be placed in the sanctum sanctorum.

The second day of the pre-consecration ceremonies at Ayodhya's Ram Temple saw several rituals being performed ahead of the pran pratishtha ceremony on January 22. The Ram Lalla's idol was carried to the temple in a truck from Vivek Srishti Trust in a homecoming for the Lord. Earlier in the day, a representative idol -- a silver Ram Lalla -- was carried across the Ram Temple premises.
