Temples Statewide to Host Continuous Recitals of Ramcharitmanas, Ramayan, Hanuman Chalisa, and More Religious Events.
The Yogi Adityanath government in Uttar Pradesh is gearing up to organize a series of religious events in prominent temples across the state, commencing with the festive occasion of Makar Sankranti in January and culminating in the Pran-Pratishtha (consecration) ceremony of Ram Lalla in Ayodhya on January 22.
As part of these religious festivities, continuous recitals of Ramcharitmanas, Ramayan, Hanuman Chalisa, and various other sacred events are being planned in temples throughout the state. The state’s tourism and culture department is currently in the process of finalizing the list of temples in all 75 districts where these events will take place.
The ‘paryatan and sanskritik parishad’ in each district will play a crucial role in organizing these events, with the assistance of local artists. Mukesh Meshram, the principal secretary of the tourism department, stated, “We are in the process of finalizing the list of temples across the state where religious events will be organized.”
According to the Hindu calendar, Makar Sankranti, observed on January 14/15, marks the Sun’s movement from the southern hemisphere to the northern hemisphere.
A significant highlight of these religious festivities is the consecration ceremony of Ram Lalla in Ayodhya on January 22, and Prime Minister Narendra Modi is scheduled to preside over this auspicious event. The elaborate plans for these religious events reflect the government’s commitment to promoting and preserving the rich cultural and religious heritage of the state.
The involvement of local artists and cultural organizations underscores the emphasis on community participation and the promotion of cultural diversity. These events are not only an expression of religious devotion but also contribute to the vibrant cultural tapestry of Uttar Pradesh. As the state prepares for these celebrations, it anticipates widespread participation, fostering a sense of unity and shared cultural identity among its residents.
