The trust has stated that the Ram temple will be built by adhering to the country`s ancient and traditional construction techniques. The holy shrine will also be built to sustain earthquakes, storms and other natural calamities.

“The Forest Department has planned to plant trees that find mention in Ramayana around the upcoming Ram Mandir to recreate the aura of the Treta Yug,” Ayodhya Divisional Forest Officer Manoj Khare told IANS.
Manoj Khare further said, “There are at least 89 species of trees which are vividly mentioned in Ramayana and can be planted. Some of them are shrubs or medium-height species and have a significant presence in the story of Lord Ram and Sita.”
The Shri Ram Janambhoomi Teerth Kshetra Trust will identify the site for the plantation of these trees, and some of the species will be brought from others as they are not available in Uttar Pradesh.
Notably, Prime Minister Narendra Modi attended the `Bhoomi pujan` at Ram Janmbhoomi site in Ayodhya on August 5.
