Odisha: Sand Animation Portrays Ram Temple’s Foundation Laying Ceremony

Puri: To commemorate the foundation laying ceremony or ‘Bhoomi Pujan’ of Ayodhya’s Shri Ram Temple, sand artist Manas Kumar Sahoo, has animated a 3 min 10 seconds video with Sand.

In his sand animation, Manas has minutely displayed the excitement of the devotees in collecting soil and water from holy sites for the ‘Shilanyas’.

Manas has also picturised them chanting the name of Lord Rama prior to beginning of the construction. Many divine essentials like Panch Ratna, Silver bilva leaves craved with the Lord’s name, etc have already been collected for the Puja.

Manas has picturised the whole event as a very divine moment for lots of devotees of India in his Sand Animation which took him nearly a day to complete.
