The ideas, the trust said, would be used to develop the 70-acre land surrounding the Ram temple.
The trust has asked individuals, social experts, architects and designers to submit their designs and ideas about the Ram Mandir masterplan. The deadline for the same has been set as November 25, before which all ideas need to be submitted at a designated email ID.
An advertisement from the trust says, "These (designs) should be based on Vaastu or Sthapatya Veda, known as Indian Science of Architecture." According to news agency ANI, the trust has also sought ideas for the Gurukul that is expected to have residential facilities for students and 'acharyas'.
