It is for the first time after the Pran Pratishtha that the style of Prabhu's clothing has been changed. Mayur and other Vaishnava symbols have been crafted using colourful resham and zari."

The trust had said that from the first day of Chaitra Navratri, April 9, till Ram Navami, April 17, the idol of Ram Lalla will wear clothes made of special hand-woven, and hand-spun khadi cotton.
