Maharashtra Chief Minister Eknath Shinde on Tuesday said he will visit Ayodhya to offer prayers to Lord Ram, but did not specify any date.

A grand temple of Lord Ram is being constructed in Uttar Pradesh city.

Speaking to reporters at the Nagpur airport, Shinde, while replying to a question, said some religious leaders from Ayodhya paid him a visit on Monday and invited him to Ayodhya for a "darshan" of Lord Ram.

Shinde said, "Ayodhya is a place of worship and admiration for us and I will visit the place."

Prime Minister Narendra Modi performed the 'Bhoomi Pujan' for the construction of the temple in August 2020.

A Supreme Court verdict of November 2019 paved the way for the construction of the Ram temple in Ayodhya.
