Rama Mandir or Rama Temple Ayodha, Inauguration

Ayodhya Abakaash: A Bit Of Mythology, A Bite Of Tourism

Ayodhya is the sanctuary of sanguinity and serendipity. The city on the banks of Sayuru is a place for a playful experience of Indian mythology, tales of Ramayan, and the salvation of the soul in Hinduism. The birthplace of Lord Rama holds sacred spirituality for pilgrims. The very air of Ayodhya enchants Ram Siya Ram and vibrates with divinity.

The city has so many temples, shrines, and ghats that retrace Lord Ram's life from his birthplace at Ram Janmabhoomi to the ghats where he is said to have bathed in the Saryu River. Every step in this city is full of the gravitating ethos of our grand mythology.

This city is believed to be the oldest city and was the capital of the Kosala Kingdom, dating back to the Vedic period. The Mughal emperor Babur renamed Ayodhya to Faizabad, which means the City of Grace, after being astonished by its grace. However, the city's original name, Ayodhya, continues to be used widely.

Places you can visit in Ayodhya to see and understand the depth of culture, devotion of pilgrims, and energy of spirituality.

  • Ram Mandir: This temple is built in Nagara Architectural style by famous temple architecture Chandrakant Sompura for Lord Purushottam.
  • Ram ki Paidi: This 360-step stairway lined with intricate carvings depicting scenes from the Ramayana leads to the Saryu River. Each step carries the echo of Rama's footsteps, leading him down to the holy waters where he is said to have bathed.
  • Kanak Bhavan: This palace believed to be Rama's residence, is now a museum showing ancient artifacts and sculptures.
  • Hanuman Garhi: This temple is dedicated to Lord Hanuman, Rama's loyal devotee.
  • Sita Samahit Sthal: This serene spot marks the place where Sita, Rama's wife, is said to have merged with the earth.

Whether you are a pilgrim seeking spiritual solace or a tourist looking for a unique cultural experience, Ayodhya has something for everyone. Come and experience the opulence of divinity in the Land of Raghava Rama.
