Ayodhya Ram temple: The grandeur of the Ram temple being built in Shri Ram Janmabhoomi Ayodhya is being discussed all over the world, but hardly anyone knows about the concrete and technology used in its foundation. A special method of concrete and technology has been used in the foundation of the temple, which will keep it safe for a thousand years.
According to the experts of the construction company, the Saryu river once used to flow from the place where the Ram temple is built in Ayodhya. Due to sandy soil, the land there was not strong enough to build such a big structure of the temple. Officials of Shri Ram Janmabhoomi Teerth Kshetra Trust were worried about this, but the engineers of the construction company found a solution.
The first plan was to build Ram temple on pillars. But soil testing revealed that the land was not like that. Soil moisture can damage the pillars. Some experts suggested adding lime to make the soil solid and strong, but it was difficult to get quality lime to fill the 12 meter deep pit dug in 2.27 acres for the base. In such a situation, an alternative to ‘Rolled Compact Concrete’ was explored. But filling the foundation with this concrete was a challenging task. For this, the resulting mash was mixed with concrete and the temperature was brought down to 18 degrees. The foundation filling work has been done only at night.
Their important role in temple construction
Champat Rai, General Secretary of Shri Ram Janmabhoomi Teerth Kshetra, said that in view of the challenges of temple construction, apart from Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Delhi, Guwahati, Chennai and Bombay, Central Building Research Institute (CBRI) Roorkee and Geophysical Research Institute (NGRI) Took the opinion of experts. Which has been constructed with modern technology in consultation with the engineers of L&T (Larsen & Toubro).
