A billboard with an image of Lord Ram along with the Ram Mandir has gone live on New York's iconic Times Square as part of the Bhoomi Pujan celebrations which have been planned by the Hindu-American diaspora in the city.
A video and image of the same was shared by ANI.
In the video one can see a huge digital billboard displaying images of the Bhavya Ram Mandir, Lord Ram and the Indian Tricolour as people can be heard chanting Jai Shri Ram in the background.
Images of the words 'Jai Shri Ram' in Hindi and English, Lord Ram's portraits and videos, 3D portraits of the temple's design and architecture as well as pictures of the laying of the foundation stone by PM Modi will be displayed across several billboards at Times Square.
The billboards are among the most striking and popular features of the Times Square, which is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world.
Besides, the members of the Indian community will also gather at the Times Square on 5 August to celebrate the bhumi pujan ceremony and will also distribute sweets to each other.
