Who is the main architect of Ram Mandir: The main planner of Sri Ram Mandir is Chandrakant Sompura, checks on the building work in Ayodya with his team.

India is getting ready for the opening of the Ram temple in Ayodhya on January 22. Once again, the attention is on the famous builder Chandrakant Sompura and his team.

The Shri Ram Janmbhoomi Teerth Kshetra is doing everything it can to make the event on January 22 a big deal. The temple town in Uttar Pradesh is supposedly being decorated and made look nice by the government.

The event to dedicate the Ram temple will take place on January 22, 2019, and Prime Minister Narendra Modi will be there. About 8,000 other people have also been invited, including famous people like Mukesh Ambani, Amitabh Bachchan, Sachin Tendulkar, and Virat Kohli.

Before the Ram temple opens, let’s look back at the many years of work that Chandrakant Sompura put in to make this dream come true.

Who is the main architect of Ram Mandir: All You need to know about Chandrakant Sompura

Sompura comes from a family of temple builders who have built more than 200 temples across the country.

A story on Times Now says that he is the 15th generation in his family to work as an architect in the temple business. In 1949, PO Sompura, Chandrakant Sompura’s grandfather, created the new Somnath Mandir in Gujarat.

A lot of temples were built by the Sompura family. The Akshardham temple complex is in Gujarat, the Swaminarayan Mandir is in Mumbai, and the famous Birla Mandir is in Kolkata.

Sompura told Outlook India in 2020 that the late Ashok Singhal, who was the head of the Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) at the time, got in touch with him through the Birla family.

More than 32 years ago, when he first went to see the site with Ashok Singhal, Sompura began working on the Ram temple in Ayodhya.

“We met and discussed the construction of the temple and had to go to Ayodhya to recce the land. With so much security present, I had to disguise myself as a devotee and measure the area with footsteps to make the masterplan,” Sompura told Outlook magazine.

Sompura and his sons Ashish and Nikhil later improved the design of the Ram temple, taking into account the size of the project.
