"One idol (of Lord Ram) will be placed inside the temple for worshipping and another will be constructed outside the temple, for the latter idol, we will decide a place after discussion. We will ensure that everything is done in a manner that people's faith is also respected and Ayodhya gets the needed recognition," he told reporters here.

His statement comes a day after he announced that the city of Faizabad would be renamed to Ayodhya.

While addressing a huge gathering here on the occasion of Deepotsav on Tuesday, Adityanath said, "Faizabad district of the state, of which Ayodhya city is a part, would be restored to its original name and would be known as Ayodhya from today."
