Ayodhya is also known as Saket, a historic Indian city. It is associated with the birth of Lord Rama and the rule of his father, Dasharatha, in the famous epic Ramayana.
With a big population, the town was affluent and strongly fortified.
Ayodhya was the early capital of the Kosala kingdom, according to legend. Kosaldesh’s capital city was controlled by a number of notable rulers, including Ikshvaku, Prithu, Mandhata, Harishchandra, Sagar, Bhagirath, Raghu, Dileep, Dashrath, and Ram.
Shravasti became the kingdom’s capital during Buddhist times, during the 6th-5th centuries BCE. Some academics believe Ayodhya is the same as Saketa, the town where Buddha is claimed to have lived for a period.
Raja Darshan Singh built the lengthy series of ghats on the River Saryu in the early nineteenth century.
The riverbank is lined with gorgeous temples devoted to Sita-Ram and Narasingh, and the sacredness of the location has increased the shrines of the Chakrahari and the Guptahari.
According to Hindu belief, Ayodhya was founded by the fictional man Manu, as chronicled in the Hindu epic Ramayana.
It then became the capital of the Suryavanshi (Sun) dynasty, whose most famous king was Lord Rama.
The Athar Veda contains references to Ayodhya as well. In addition, Jain traditions hold that five Tirthankaras were born in Ayodhya.
Ayodhya is a historic town that is considered one of the Hindus’ seven sacred towns.
