18th January 2024, 6:00 AM IST: SriMandir, India’s first devotional app unveils Ramotsav by SriMandir, on the auspicious occasion of the Ram Mandir (temple) inauguration in Ayodhya by the Hon’ble Prime Minister of India. The Elevation Capital and Peak XV-backed startup is set to illuminate the city with the glow of more than 100,000 diyas during a week-long celebration from 18th – 24th January’24 at Raj Dwar temple, Ayodhya. As part of Ram Mandir celebrations, Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi along with RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat and UP Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath will lead a Prana Pratishtha ceremony on 22nd January’24, in the presence of over 4,000 saints (priests) and 2,500 eminent citizens. This first-of-its-kind initiative by SriMandir will provide a personalized experience to every devotee celebrating this historic event in India.

As part of the festivities, SriMandir will organize pujas and pathas in Ayodhya, enabling participants from around the world to engage from the comfort of their homes in the spiritual rituals, virtually. As part of the Deepotsav initiative on the app, devotees globally can engage in diya lighting, illuminating Ayodhya with 1, 5, 11, or 21 diyas in their name to extend a pious welcome to Lord Ram. Recognizing that several senior citizens have waited for many decades for this moment but may be too old to travel to Ayodhya to witness the consecration in person, Srimandir is offering to light up to 10,000 diyas free of cost for users above the age of 60. The team at SriMandir will capture these moments and share personalized videos of the lit diyas with the participating devotees.

Speaking about this momentous occasion, Prashant Sachan, Founder & CEO, of SriMandir, said, “I am humbled and elated to witness the inauguration of this grand Ram Mandir, a symbol of devotion and faith. Our aim is to bring this experience to each and every devotee across the country and outside the country as well and encourage them to partake in the celebrations. Our devotion-driven app seeks to connect hearts globally, fostering spiritual unity and help participants experience the essence of devotion in the digital age.”

The app also offers access to grand pujas conducted in Ayodhya for four days, allowing individuals from around the world to actively participate. The SriMandir team will organize these customized pujas, chanting taking the names and gotras of participants, shipping prasad to their addresses, and sharing video footage of the pujas. The pujas will be dedicated to the Sri Ram Family, Hanuman Ji, and the Sareyu River, creating a divine atmosphere to welcome Lord Ram back.

SriMandir is also providing comprehensive live coverage of all Ayodhya activities, including the Inauguration Ceremony, making it accessible to devotees worldwide through the app.

SriMandir’s innovative initiatives align with its broader mission of assisting a billion Indians on their spiritual and devotional journeys. By combining technology and devotion, SriMandir strives to guide individuals on the path towards happiness, peace, and contentment.

SriMandir warmly invites devotees worldwide to join in this joyous celebration, uniting hearts and spirits in welcoming Lord Ram to Ayodhya through their official SriMandir app or the official website.
