2100 Kg bell for Ram Mandir Crafted By A Muslim Craftsman, IQBAL, In Jalesar In ETAH District
2100kg Bell made of Ashtadhatu.

The bell is not just brass but made of "ashtadhatu", a combination of eight metals -- gold, silver, copper, zinc, lead, tin, iron and mercury. What's unique about it is that it does not have multiple pieces welded together rather it is just made from one piece. This is one of the largest bells in India.

Dau Dayal aged 50, was primarily responsible for making the 'ashtadhatu' bell, Iqbal Mistri aged 56, was in charge of the designing, grinding, and polishing work. A team of around 25 workers, worked for a month for eight hours a day.

Vikas Mittal, the owner of the workshop and Chairman of Jalesar municipal council in Etah District, says to donate the bell to the Ram Mandir. The bell costs them Rs. 21 lakh. The Mittals got the order to prepare the bell from the Nirmohi Akhara -- one of the litigants in the Ayodhya title dispute -- immediately after the matter was decided last November by the apex court, paving the way for the construction of the temple.
