Union Minister Pralhad Joshi announced that the Ram Temple will dedicate Arun Yogiraj's 'Ram Lalla' idol on January 22, praising its depiction of Rama and Hanuman's closeness.

Arun Yogiraj, a renowned sculptor from Mysore, has chosen his idol of Ram Lalla for the grand Ram Temple in Ayodhya.

Union Minister Pralhad Joshi confirmed the choice of the idol for the Prana Pratishtapana ceremony of Lord Rama in Ayodhya. 

Former Chief Minister of Karnataka, B. S. Yediyurappa, expressed his pride in the choice of Lord Ram's idol for installation in Ram Mandir. 

Yogiraj stated that the idol should depict a child with divine qualities, representing the embodiment of a deity. 

There was a strong emphasis placed by him on the value of picking and respecting the idol that was chosen.

Yogiraj's artistic skills have thrived since 2008, producing renowned sculptures that have achieved widespread acclaim.

The Ram temple in Ayodhya, set to open on January 22, will feature a Lord Ram idol by MBA-turned-sculptor Arun Yogiraj from Karntaka.
