Amidst the enthusiasm of all the Ram devotees regarding the consecration ceremony of Ram temple in Ayodhya, the perfume traders of Kannauj have prepared a special fragrance to make Ramlala fragrant. It will be presented to the Temple Construction Trust for use during the puja on the auspicious time of Pran-Pratishtha on 22nd January. Pawan Trivedi, President of ‘Kannauj Attars and Perfumes Association’, said on Wednesday that all the small and big perfume businessmen in Kannauj have together prepared some special fragrances which are to be sent to Ayodhya today in the service of Ram Lalla.
He told that different types of perfumes and scented water will be collected on a chariot, taken on a tour of the city and sent to Ayodhya. Trivedi told that these special types of perfumes and fragrant water will be presented to the Shri Ram Janmabhoomi Teerth Kshetra Trust which is constructing the temple for use during the puja on the auspicious time of consecration on January 22. He told, “In Kannauj, rose water made from rose flowers has been prepared in which Ram Lalla will take bath. After that Ramlala will be scented with the famous perfumes of Kannauj, Atar Mitti, Atar Motiya, Rooh Gulab, sandalwood oil and Henna.”
Trivedi said, “Not only this, the perfume businessmen of Kannauj, keeping the winter in mind, have also made Attar Shamama for their Ramlala which helps in protecting from cold. A mixture of herbs has also been used in making this special perfume.” He said that the perfume of Kannauj will make not only Ramlala but also the entire temple premises fragrant with its fragrance. The consecration ceremony will be organized in the Ram temple on January 22 in Ayodhya. Preparations for this are being done in full swing. Many eminent personalities including Prime Minister Narendra Modi have been invited to the program.
Meanwhile, according to the report received from Etah, a bell weighing 2100 kg has been handed over to Shri Ram Janmabhoomi Teerth Kshetra Trust on Tuesday on behalf of the people of Jalesar, known as Ghunghru and Ghanti Nagri.

He claimed that once struck, the sound of this bell would be heard up to 10 kilometers away. He told that this hour has been made from Ashtadhatu and its price is around Rs 25 lakh.
