New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi will address the 14th Foundation Day celebrations of Umiya Mata Temple at Gathila in Junagadh, Gujarat at 1 pm on Sunday via video conferencing, Modi said on Twitter.

This event has been organized to celebrate the foundation day as well as the occasion of Ram Navami.

“Tomorrow at 1 pm on the auspicious occasion of Ram Navami, I will address the 14th Foundation Day celebrations of Umiya Mata Temple at Gathila, Junagadh. This temple trust is at the forefront of many community service initiatives,” Modi announced on his Twitter handle.

 

He also inaugurated the temple in 2008 when Modi was the Chief Minister of Gujarat.

Based on the suggestions given by the Prime Minister in 2008, the temple trust has expanded its scope to various social and health related activities as well as free cataract operations and free Ayurvedic medicines for economically weaker patients.

 

Umiya Maa is considered to be the Kul-devi or ‘Kuldevi’ of the Kadwa Patidars.

Meanwhile, the country is all set to celebrate the festival of Ram Navami, a mandatory Hindu festival to mark the birth of Lord Rama. He was born in Ayodhya.

For the oblivious, Lord Rama was born during Madhyahna Kaal, meaning middle of the Hindu day. This is considered the most auspicious time to worship Ram Navami.
