Surya Tilak: The work on the Surya Abhishek of Lord Ram had been ongoing for many years. Scientists conducted extensive research on this and even carried out a trial a few days ago, which was successful.

Surya Tilak: On the day of Ram Navami in Ayodhya, at 12 noon on Wednesday, the rays of the sun falling on the forehead of Ram Lalla captivated the attention of the entire world. The work on the Surya Abhishekam of Lord Ram had been underway for many years. Scientists conducted extensive research on this and even conducted a trial a few days ago, which proved successful. People from all over the world tuned in to TV and online portals to witness this moment. This moment of faith came true due to the efforts of scientists. But how did the sun’s rays fall on Ramlala’s forehead? Let’s understand the science behind it.

‘CBRI’ Roorkee’s Remarkable Achievement

Lord Ram was born on the day of Ram Navami at 12 noon. The aim of ‘Surya Tilak’ is to have the sun’s rays fall on the forehead of the idol of Lord Ram every year at 12 noon on Ram Navami. To make this possible, scientists from the Central Building Research Institute (CBRI) developed the mechanism for Surya Tilak. According to media reports, the Indian Institute of Astrophysics (IIA), Bangalore also contributed to this effort, ensuring accurate knowledge of the path of the Sun.

What Did the Scientists Do?

Scientists used three mirrors to direct the sun’s rays onto Ramlala’s forehead. The first mirror was placed on the top floor (third floor) of the temple. As soon as the sun’s rays fell on that mirror at 12 noon, they were reflected 90 degrees and directed to another mirror through a pipe. From there, the sun’s rays were reflected again and passed through the brass pipe to reach the third mirror. After falling on the third mirror, the sun rays were reflected 90 degrees again and, rotating at 90 degrees with speed, fell directly on Ramlala’s forehead.

75mm Diameter, Lasting 4 Minutes

When the sun rays passed through the pipe and fell on Ramlala’s forehead, a circular shape with a diameter of 75 mm was formed. The sun’s rays illuminated Ramlala’s head for a total of four minutes. This entire experiment was conducted without electricity. The lens and tube used in it were manufactured by the Bangalore-based company Optica.
