“It is left for the trust to use it in whichever way they deem fit. Our only purpose is that a grand Ram temple should be built,” he added.
The gold brick weighs 5 kg and the silver one weighs 20 kg.
The holy men are from different districts of Tamil Nadu and came to Ayodhya to participate in the ‘bhoomi pujan’.
