Black granite from K’taka to raise Ram temple plinth

After completion of the Ram temple foundation, raising its height to 107m above sea level, the second phase of construction began at Ramjanmabhoomi on Tuesday after special ‘mahurat’ prayers at the proposed sanctum sanctorum. For the first time, black granite stones are being shipped from quarries in forested Kollegal region on the Karnataka-Tamil Nadu border for building the plinth, besides sourcing sculpted stones from Mirzapur and pink marble from Bansi Paharpur in Rajasthan.Original Article
