The billboard at the Times Square is one of the most expensive display boards of the world and the Ram Mandir images have been displayed on the board. President of the American India Public Affairs Committee Jagdish Sewhani said that the expensive billboards are leased and they are equipped with the highest resolution exterior LED screen in the Times Square. The 17,000-square-foot wrap-around LED display screen is booked well in advance for the occasion. Soil from 2000 holy sites across the country and water from 100 rivers in the country are used for the three-day rituals which were completed by yesterday.
