Surya Kund in Ayodhya

The Legacy of Artisticks in Revolutionary Ayodhya

There is no denying the fact that the ancient city of Ayodhya in Uttar Pradesh is one of the most sought-after cities in India today and one that is on everybody’s wish list.  The grand consecration aka Pran Pratishtha ceremony of the idol of Ram Lalla in the sanctum sanctorum of the historic Ram mandir on 22-January’24 marked the successful opening of the Ayodhya Ram Mandir.  This was a moment that was much awaited by the people of the country and it is been a spectacular home coming for Ayodhya Shri Ram.

Kunds: Intrinsically Connected with Lord Rama

Kunds: Intrinsically Connected with Lord Rama Apart from the Ram Mandir, Ayodhya is set for an unprecedented and massive transformation in the coming years with over 200 mega projects underway.  This translates into a development of over INR 30,000 crores which is all set to make Ayodhya one of the most beautiful and happening cities of the world.  While the Ayodhya Ram temple is literally the heart and the soul of the town, the city is also known for its legendary ponds which are locally known as Kunds.  They are scattered across the city and have immense mythological importance.  Revered by sadhus, travellers and locals alike, there are several fairs and festivals centred around these kunds.  They are intrinsically associated with the life of Lord Rama and his brothers and taking a dip in them is considered to be very auspicious.  Bharata kund, Dantdhawan kund, Khajuha kund and Surya Kund are some of the most significant and popular ponds of the city.  The Surya Kund is situated in Darshan Bazar near Ayodhya and is believed to have been constructed bying ‘Darshan’ who is said to be the descendant of Lord Rama.  The Surya temple close by attracts locals, tourists as well as pilgrims from far and wide.

Mural of the Sun God by the House of Artisticks

The team of Artisticks is delighted to announce that a bespoke decorative outdoor mural crafted by their team has now been installed at the entrance of Surya Kund.  A majestic showstopper this one is unmissable if you visit Surya Kund in Ayodhya.  Handcrafted, this external wall elevation mural has been designed in a resplendent golden hue; a colour which is synonymous with the Sun God.  Associated with power and strength, the Sun God or Lord Surya is often represented as a God riding a chariot drawn by seven horses.  This universal symbol denotes radiance and the journey of the sun across the sky.  It also symbolizes the omnipresence of the God as He spreads His light and warmth across the universe. 

the mural design accurately brings this image of Lord Surya to life with its impeccable craftsmanship.  While the Lord drawing His chariot of seven horses is depicted on either side, the central part of the wall mural connecting the two chariots is the sun.  The latter has been represented as a semi-circle with sharp rays emanating from the centre.  The expression of the Lord, the power of the horses and the overall finishing is almost flawless making it a perfect fit for the city of Ayodhya. 

This decorative wall mural is a masterpiece in metal wall art and is well suited for the outdoors.  It adds contextual beauty to the space and is a conversation starter for sure.  Handcrafted with great attention to detail, the entire piece bears a uniform hue. The finishing has a subtle sheen which not only gives it a royal look but also makes it look extremely beautiful both during the day as well as night time.  The cynosure of all eyes, this grandiose piece has been crafted in BMAF and weighs over a whopping 1300 kg.  This 30 feet plus masterpiece took a total of 98 days to make which is a reflection of the skill and unwavering commitment of our artisans.
