Nepal's Foreign Minister Narayan Prasad Saud visited Ayodhya, emphasising the importance of the Ram temple as a crucial pilgrimage site and expressing his commitment to fostering cultural ties between India and Nepal.

India-Nepal have cultural relations, it's very deep and not only between governments but people-to-people connections. We are determined to strengthen this cultural tie and also to develop religious tourism between Ayodhya-Janakpur and Kashi-Pashupatinath."

The delegation, representing the Indian diaspora in Fiji, arrived at Maharshi Valmiki Airport in Ayodhya were eager to partake in the religious and cultural significance of the sacred city.

The Ram Lalla idol was unveiled at the Pran Pratishtha ceremony after the hour-long rituals in the presence of Prime Minister Narendra Modi who led the ceremony on January 22.

The Prime Minister walked inside the temple premises with a silver 'chattar' (umbrella) placed on a red folded dupatta.

The 'Ram Nagri' Ayodhya also grabbed global eyeballs, with earthen lamps or diyas lit up on a massive scale and crackers going up and dazzling the night sky in different parts of the city.

The event saw the participation of about 8,000 invitees, including 1,500-1,600 eminent guests.
