Sharing the itinerary of his journey, he said, his first stop was city of Lord Krishna, Mathura-Vrindavan, and then he moved to Khatu Shyam temple in Rajasthan, and covered well-known Hindu shrines such as Mata Vaishno Devi, Naina Devi and Jwala ji.
“I also visited the Golden Temple in Amritsar, all four dhams, Rishikesh, Ujjain’s Mahakal temple, 10 our if 12 Jyotirlinga sites and the Ashtvinayak temple and Dwarkadhish temple in Gujarat. From West Bengal and Bihar, I then entered Ayodhya,” he added.
Asked about the challenges he faced during his journey, besides the weather extremities in these months, he said, “In Tamil Nadu, I faced some language issues. India is a very beautiful country, which I have experienced myself over the last about 250 days”.
The best thing was enthusiasm of people that was seen, he added.
Sanjay Singh, a traffic sub-inspector, who has come to Ayodhya on duty, posed for pictures with Bhagat.
“A person should have the zeal and zest, then one can do anything. I am feeling very good, Lord Ram called me. I have come from Saharanpur and we have to stay here till January 31,” he said.
Bilasi Ram, 65, has also reached Ayodhya, pedalling all the way from Bareilly, about 500 km away.
“I started my journey on January 12 and reached Ayodhya late night on Wednesday.
I also carried five bricks with me, which I have given for Ramjanmabhoomi temple,” he told PTI as saffron flags bearing images of Lord Hanuman tied on both sides of his cycle fluttered.
Asked what prompted him to undertake the journey in biting cold, Ram said, “I am not doing it myself, Lord Ram asked me to. Lord Ram and Lord Hanuman are inseparable.”
