Engineering and construction conglomerate Larsen & Toubro (L&T) on Sunday said it has designed and built the Ram Temple in Ayodhya, Uttar Pradesh.

The much-awaited Ram temple consecration will be held on Monday. Prime Minister Narendra Modi will attend the rituals, following which the shrine will be opened to the public a day later.

As mandated by the Shri Ram Janmbhoomi Teerth Kshetra Trust, Larsen & Toubro has successfully designed and built the Shri Ram Janmbhoomi Temple, establishing a new milestone in architectural grandeur, the construction firm said in a statement.

The temple stands within a 70-acre complex, with its design rooted in the ancient Nagara style of architecture.

Constructed to last a thousand years, the temple is 161.75 feet in height, 380 feet in length, and 249.5 feet in width.

It will be a three-story temple comprising five mandaps—Nritya Mandap, Rang Mandap, Gudh Mandap, Kirtan Mandap, and Prarthana Mandap—along with the Main Shikar.

"In designing and constructing the Shri Ram Janmbhoomi Mandir, we express our heartfelt gratitude to the Government...." L&T chairman and managing director S.N. Subrahmanyan said.

L&T is a $23 billion Indian multinational engaged in engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) projects, Hi-Tech manufacturing and services. It operates in over 50 countries worldwide.
