Granite, sandstone, and marble are the chosen materials for the temple. These stones form a meticulously assembled lock-and-key mechanism quintessential to the Sanatani architectural style. Modern architecture uses iron rods with a lifespan of at most 90 years. Thus, the temple trust chose to use ancient technology of temple constructions that have passed the test of time.

The absence of steel or iron ensures an extraordinary lifespan of up to 1,000 years for Ayodhya Ram Mandir. Another unique feature is the absence of cement or mortar, underscoring the priority of traditional Sanatani sentiments and building methods. May the beauty of Mandir never be stained! May its generosity to all never be strained!
