Countries overseas have seen a rise in demand for replicas of Ram Mandir

Even overseas countries have seen a rise in demand for replicas of the Ram Mandir models in Ayodhya before the consecration ceremony. According to reports, Aditya Singh, the owner of the factory, who is involved in the manufacturing of Ram Mandir models, said, "Previously, orders were issued from within India; presently, they are coming from outside, and from different departments including as the police, courts, electricity, and CBI branch. There is a demand for models among saints and marriage functions."

"And now the demand for the models has increased; people overseas are seeing it and demanding it. We received a call from America requesting a Ram Mandir model. We provided all the details, and they said they wanted a larger size, which they will order through the ships," he added.

On the order's size received from America, Sing continued that the model would be eight feet long, about four and a half feet wide, and its height would be around five feet. Regarding the model's price, Single replied, saying it would be between Rs 90,000 and Rs 1 lakh.
