About Ayodhya

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 the Hindu 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.
