Govind Devgiri Maharaj, treasurer of the Ram Temple Construction Committee, has expressed confidence that the temple will last for a thousand years in Ayodhya. He estimated that the construction of the temple would cost a total of Rs 1,100 crore. He was speaking at a press conference in Pune. “Attempts have been made to build a temple that will last for a thousand years with only sand up to 200 feet, but they have not succeeded. But now with the help of IITs in Mumbai, Guwahati and Hyderabad, a committee of experts has been appointed and given two options. The meeting lasted for two days to decide which of them to choose. This temple will stand on the foundation of stones and will last for a thousand years, ”said Govind Devagiri Maharaj.
