Prime Minister Narendra Modi is likely to attend the ‘Bhoomi pujan’ (ground-breaking) ceremony of the temple scheduled to be held on August 5.

Holy water from Triveni Sangamam or Mukkudal of Kanyakumari and Cauvery river and sacred soil from Tamil Nadu have been sent to Ayodhya where the “bhoomi pujan” ceremony for Lord Ram’s grand temple will be performed on 5 August, said officials of Tamil Nadu unit of Vishva Hindu Parishad (VHP).

Mukkudal in Kanyakumari is the confluence of three seas — the Indian Ocean, Bay of Bengal and Arabian Sea.

“Holy water from the Triveni Sangamam in Kanyakumari and sacred soil from Dhanushkodi near Rameswaram have been sent to Ayodhya,” R Sethuraman, Organising Secretary, Tamil Nadu (South) VHP told IANS.

As per the legend, Dhanushkodi is the place where Lord Ram broke the Ram Sethu bridge with his bow’s end and hence the name Dhanushkodi “bows end”.

Rameswaram is one of the important pilgrimage town for Hindus where Ramanathaswamy Temple is located. The presiding deity is Lord Shiva. It is believed that Lord Ram prayed to Lord Shiva here.
