The Ruins of Ayodhya

The Ruins of Ayodhya is one of the cool travel experience. Apart from spiritual significance it has a lot to offer the Awadh Culture the Saryu River and the non commercialized you can say undeveloped town is totally worth of vising. The place has temples, maths, ashrams all dedicated to Lord Rama and the epic Ramayana. You can hear ramdhuni, bhajan, kirtan in every next street throughout the year. Ayodhya will not welcome you with luxury hotels but it's own culture and rural living will definitely take you away. One or two days to sufficient to explore Ayodhya if you want to stay long then you gonna definitely love it more.

Ayodhya Overview

Ayodhya is a small town of the ancient times in the district of Faizabad in Uttar Pradesh. It is situated on the bank of the River Saryu. It is about 140 km from Lucknow, the capital city of Uttar Pradesh.

Ayodhya is better known as the birth place of Lord Rama and at that time it was the capital of the Kosala Kingdom, as read in the Ramayana, the holy book of the Sanatan Dharma known as Kaushaldesa. The name Ayodhya comes from the name of King Ayodh, the fore father of Lord Rama.

The history of the city goes back to the 5th century, during the Kanishk rule, when it was called Saket. Ayodhya was also the capital of Awadh when it was under the rule of the Nawabs. Today it is one of the major pilgrimage spots for Hindus. According to the Puranas and Skand, it is considered one of the seven most sacred places of the Sanatan Dharma.

Ayodhya is not just a place for Hindus. It also has great significance for the Buddhist and Jain scholars. The city exhibits important heritage and historical facets of Buddhism and Jainism in its many temples and monuments. It is also said that many learning centres have been established here at the time of the Maurya and the Gupta dynasty.

Ayodhya was taken over by the Mughals when Babar entered India. It is believed that he destroyed the temple of lord Rama which was at his birth place and constructed a mosque at that place. Since then it had been a controversial site between Hindus and Muslims. In 1992 the mosque was destroyed.

The culture of Ayodhya is an example of the brotherhood of Hindus and Muslims. Hanumanghari Temple, a very famous temple dedicated to Lord Hanuman, was built by the Nawab of Awadh. Other monuments of religious significance are Sundar Bhavan and the famous Ramji Temple.

The best time to visit Ayodhya is October to March. The city has a subtropical climate which is warm and humid. The average summer temperature is 32°C and the average temperature in winter is 16°C. The rainy season lasts from mid-June to early October.
