The international sand artist MR. Sudarsan Pattnaik, who dips his brush in his soul and paint his nature into his art, on the eve of ground-breaking ceremony in Ayodhya, has created a replica of Ram temple on Puri beach.
Mr Pattnaik was keen to create a sand sculpture of the temple at Ayodhya during “Bhoomi pujan,” but had to do it on Puri beach because of an outbreak of COVID-19.
He visited Ayodhya last year and study about the temple for his sand sculpture, but he had to change his plane due to pandemic.
Sudarsan created five feet tall replica of the Ram temple on the Puri beach using four tonnes of sand.
To create this five feet tall replica, he had to spend five hours on the ground.
Mr. Pattnaik also said we all are going to witness one of the most historical moments in the history of independent India. A new chapter is going to be written in Ayodhya.
August 5 will mark the beginning of the construction of Ram temple or “Bhoomi Pujan” after a decades-long title suit over the site in Ayodhya was settled by Supreme Court last November.
Mr. Pattnaik is a well recognized Indian sand artist throughout the world. He was born in a low-income family in the holy land of Prabhu Shri Jagannath in 1997.
Mr. Pattnaik has represented INDIA in more than 60 international sand art competitions and won several prizes for the country.
In 2014 Mr. Pattnaik was honored as Padma Shri By Govt of India, and he also bagged various national awards like National Youth Award (2004–05), National Tourism Award (2005–06).
In 2009 he awarded as people of the year by Limca Book and Young Indian Leadership Award by CNN IBN in 2010.
