Pastor of Ayodhya Ram Mandir

In 2023, among 3,000 priests who applied for the role at the Ram temple in Ayodhya, only 200 made it to the interview based on their qualifications. The interviews took place at the Vishva Hindu Parishad (VHP) Karsevak Puram in Ayodhya. Eventually, a select group of 20 priests were chosen by a panel consisting of notable figures such as Hindu preacher Jaykant Mishra from Vrindavan, along with mahants Satyanarayan Das and Nandini Sharan from Ayodhya. Mohit Pandey was among these selected priests. Before commencing his duties at the temple’s inauguration on January 22, 2024, he underwent a rigorous six-month training.

However, following his appointment, there was controversy when private photos supposedly depicting him circulated on social media. After an investigation by the Ayodhya Police, it was revealed that the images were manipulated using AI technology. Hitendra Pithadiya, a Congress leader from Gujarat, was arrested for spreading these fake images.

Net worth

As of 2024, Mohit Pandey’s net worth is reported to be 5 lakh rupees. This information follows his appointment as ‘Acharya’.
