NEW DELHI, Jan 24: Many devotees interpreted it as Hanumanji coming to pay obeisance to Ram Lalla and bless the newly constructed grand Ram Temple in Ayodhya, the people visiting the temple on Tuesday were awe-struck as a nimble monkey found its way into the sanctum sanctorum and then moved out on its own.
At around 5:50 pm, the primate, seemingly unfazed by the sacred grandeur of the inner sanctum of the temple, entered through the southern gate and approached the revered Utsav idol of Lord Ram.
Security personnel stationed outside, initially alarmed by the unexpected guest, rushed towards the monkey, fearing it might cause harm to the idol. But instead of causing any disruption, it gracefully traversed the sanctum before heading towards the northern gate. Finding it closed, the monkey simply turned eastward and, navigating the throngs of awe-struck devotees, exited peacefully through the eastern gate.
“Today at around 5:50 pm, a monkey entered the sanctum sanctorum through the southern gate and entered the Utsav idol. Reached near. The security personnel posted outside saw this and ran towards the monkey thinking that the monkey might drop the Utsav idol on the ground. But as soon as the policemen ran towards the monkey, the monkey ran calmly towards the northern gate. Since the gate was closed, he moved towards the east and passing through the crowd, went out through the eastern gate without causing any trouble to anyone. The security personnel say that for us it is as if Hanuman ji himself has come to see Ramlalla,” Shri Ram Janmabhoomi Teerth Kshetra posted in X.
Many devotees interpreted it as a sign of Hanuman Ji’s continued guardianship over Lord Ram and his blessings upon the newly established temple as it happened just a day after the Pran Pratishtha of Ram Lalla at Ram Temple in Ayodhya held on Monday in the presence of the Prime Minister Narendra Modi,
