About Kanak Bhavan (Place of Worship)

voted as clean

Kanak Bhavan, which is also known as Sone ka Ghar (House of gold) was built in the 19th century. The temple is situated in the centre of Ayodhya and is visited by a number of travellers. Kanak Bhavan is devoted to Lord Ram and his wife Sita.

It is believed that Rani Kaikey built this bhavan for Sita and it has been subsequently restored time and again by various kings. One of the main attractions of this temple is the musicians who perform in the white and black tiled courtyard. It is believed that the temple was constructed in 1891 by Rani Krishnabhanu Kunwari of Orccha.

The bhavan also has statues of Lord Ram and Sita in the inner sanctum. Apart from being embellished with gold ornaments, the images also wear gold crowns. Moreover there is a plague written on the outer wall of the temple, which states that there were many palaces on this site since the Treta Yuga.

This temple is right next to Hanuman Garhi. You can visit here just after Hanuman Garhi or after returning janmbhoomi and all temples. This temple is dedicated to Mata Seeta and Lord Rama. One of the recommended place to visit.

"One of the most elaborately detailed place of Ayodhya"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted Aug 30, 2015
It is one of the most elaborately detailed place of Ayodhya. This temple build was considered to house another temple which was gifted to Sita immediately after her marriage by Lord Shree Rama step mother of Kaikai. It is good for visit.
