Welcome to Ayodhya


Ayodhya is revered as the birthplace of Rama – and as such one of Hinduism’s seven holy cities – as well as the birthplace of four of Jainism’s 24 tirthankars (religious teachers). It was also the site of one of modern India’s most controversial religious disputes, but the only evidence you'll see of that today is a more robust police presence than a town of this size would usually warrant, and intense security precautions around the site where Rama is said to have been born.

The slightly larger town of Faizabad, 7km away, is the jumping-off point for Ayodhya and where you’ll find more accommodation.
