While the Supreme Court concluded hearings in the Ayodhya case and reserved its judgment on Wednesday, the Ayodhya city remained cool and calm.
People, Hindus in particular, now hope that a final judgment is going to be a reality soon.
In the city, life was like any normal day with people visiting religious places. Tourists in Ayodhya were also in a jubilant mood as they hoped that Ram temple will soon be a reality.
The Ayodhya administration has beefed up security in the city. As a precautionary measure, Section 144 and prohibitory orders are already in place but no unusual movement was reported.
Sadhus turned to the makeshift TV news channel studios since morning in Karyashala in Ayodhya. The moment the CJI reserved his judgment, there was sense of relief and jubilation among the sadhus and seers.
A seer told India Today TV: “We were waiting for this day because the case of Ayodhya dispute was endless and at one time people lost hope. But now, we are hopeful that the verdict will come in our favour.
