The “Surya Tilak” is a special feature of the Ayodhya Ram Temple, designed to apply a symbolic tilak (mark) using the sun’s rays on the forehead of Lord Ram’s idol every year on Shri Ram Navami. This innovative system, developed in collaboration with the Indian Institute of Astrophysics and CSIR-CBRI Roorkee, involves a gearbox and reflective mirrors/lenses to track and direct the sun’s rays from the temple’s third floor to the sanctum sanctorum. The occurrence symbolizes the celebration of Lord Ram’s birthday and merges traditional spiritual practices with modern technology.
