Ram Mandir: A 500-person procession bearing 1,100 bhars (baskets) filled with things meant as bridal gifts for Lord Ram will arrive in Ayodhya from Janakpur, Nepal, the birthplace Sita, in the days preceding the inauguration of the Ram Temple on January 22. The procession is expected to start on January 4 from Janaki Mandir in Janakpur and end two days later on January 6 in Ayodhya. The bhars will be brimming with wedding gifts, including jewelry made of silver and gold, dry fruits, cutlery, clothes, makeup, and copious amounts of food grains like rice. Traditionally, a bride receives these things as gifts from her spouse when they get married and move in together.

The tour is being organized by a committee called Janakpurdhamash Ayodhyadham Bhar Yatra, whose member Lalit Shah told the media that on January 6th, they will deliver offerings for Lord Rama from Sita's hometown of Janakpur to Ayodhya. This is slated to happen before to the Ram Temple's consecration on January 22. Accommodations for 251 procession participants have been arranged by the local authorities of Ayodhya. The organizing committee is also arranging for the remaining participants to be accommodated at various private facilities.


The procession would travel from Janaki Mandir to Jaleshwar and then to Birganj, where they would spend the night, that Shah explained. About thirty cars and five buses will make up the parade that will carry the gifts. On January 5, they want to enter India by Raxaul, go to Betia for lunch, and then travel via Gorakpur and Bastipur to reach Ayodhya. At eight in the morning on January 6, the team is supposed to deliver the 1,100 bhars to the temple trustees.
