THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Shri Ram Janmabhoomi Teerth Temple Trust has received a donation of Rs 13 crore from Kerala for the construction of Ram temple in Ayodhya. The total amount received from the country is Rs 2500 crore. The highest donation obtained was from Rajasthan. Rs 85 crore was received from Tamil Nadu for the construction of the temple.

The amount received till March 4 was released by Shri Ram Janmabhoomi Teerth Temple Trust. Trust authorities said the amount may increase in the final count. Donations were accepted from houses from January 15 to February 27.
