Ayodhya Pavitra Dham' written on it. It has also bows of Lord Ram designed onto it. The cloth has been made using cotton and silk threads," he said.
"I have been preparing this cloth for the past 15 days. The colours used to make the cloth are golden and red. While its length is 72 inches, it is 22 inches wide," he added.
He plans to send the cloth to Ayodhya through the Commissioner of Police.
