Prime Minister Narendra Modi today laid a 40 kilogram silver brick in Ayodhya’s Ram temple site in order to signify the putting up of much awaited Ram temple. The site in Ram Janmabhoomi was called into question up to the time that the Supreme Court handed over ownership to Hindus in 2019.

While giving an address at the groundbreaking ceremony, the prime minister stated that, "It is my good fortune that Ram Janmabhoomi Trust has invited me to the event... and gave me a chance to be a witness to this historic moment."

Here’s PM Modi's top quotes at Ram temple event:

* "Ram Temple construction not just marks a historic moment. It is a reminder that history repeats itself."

* "This day is a proof of the resolve of crores of devotees. This day is a unique gift of truth, non-violence, faith and sacrifice to India, a country that loves justice."

* "Today's Bhoomi Poojan event is being held amid many limitations. It sets an example similar to how Sri Ram adhered to limits. This example was also set when the top court announced its decision last year."

* "The temple construction won't just add to the beauty of Ayodhya... it would also change the face of the area and more opportunities will be created. Imagine, people from across the world will come here for darshan of Lord Ram and Janaki Mata,"

* "This temple will become a symbol of our heritage, our unwavering faith. It will also become a symbol of resolve of crores of people."

* "There's hardly any aspect of life where we can't draw inspiration from Lord Ram. There's no national sentiment that doesn't reflect his values. India's faith has a reflection of Lord Ram, India's ideals have a reflection of him. India's divinity has Ram... when one visits a country, he can sense Lord Ram"
