Kanak Bhavan snapshot
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.
