Ayodhya is all geared up to get a brand new makeover. Reports suggest that after the Supreme Court’s verdict on the Ayodhya land dispute on November 9, the Uttar Pradesh Government has been planning to turn this place into one of the major religious tourist destinations in North India.
Also, to promote it as an international tourist destination, the UP Government is all pepped up to ensure fast development of the holy city. As per the sources in the Culture and Tourism Department, a 13-km long corridor depicting the life of Lord Ram will be built, and a cruise on River Saryu on lines similar to that of Varanasi will enable visitors in enjoying the scenic and panoramic view of the Rama Temple.
A senior official in the Chief Minister’s Secretariat stated that there are also plans to get all states build their own buildings like Maharashtra Bhawan, Karnataka Bhawan, and Uttarakhand Bhawan in Ayodhya. Reportedly, a new township will also come up alongside the construction of the Rama Temple to attract tourists from all over the world. If everything goes as planned, Ayodhya will soon be home to the replicas of the famous Somnath Temple, Meenakshi Temple, Tirupati Temple, and Konark Temple.
Apart from all this, the government is also planning to make air connectivity better in Ayodhya, and an international airport will likely be inaugurated on Rama Navami next year. Referring to all this, Ayodhya Mayor Rakesh Upadhyay stated that the government is in the process of finalising development programs for Ayodhya on a large scale. He also mentioned that all those plans will be made public very soon once they are finalised.
