Ayodhya is renowned for its natural beauty and cultural heritage. The spiritual city has witnessed a surge
in tourist arrivals. In 2019, it welcomed around 20 million visitors, including premier domestic travelers.
The annual growth rates for domestic & international tourists have been steady at 7% and 10% respectively.
Tourists are drawn to Ayodhya for its rich cultural aspects, including the Sarayu River, Shri Ram Janmabhoomi
Teerth Kshetra, and Chaudah Kosi Parikrama. The Ayodhya Tourism Department forecasts a 3.9% growth
in tourist arrivals by 2031, driven by the estimated completion of the Shri Ram Janmabhoomi Temple,
infrastructure upgrades (Airport, City Route), Greenfield development projects, and proposed iconic structures.
In a significant display of commitment towards the development of Ayodhya, we have announced a massive investment of 1200 Cr. solely dedicated to the city’s economic development. The decision comes in line with the vision of the State Government. Over and above that, we plan to invest 3,000 Cr. to develop integrated townships for developing Ayodhya as the Global Spiritual Capital. The inauguration
of the new oce in the city marks a significant milestone. Our decision to invest heavily here
demonstrates its unwavering dedication to the growth and prosperity of the city.
AYODHYA’S FIRST 7-STAR MIXED-USE DEVELOPMENT
Sarayu, derived from the Sanskrit word for ‘air,’ symbolizes the essence of air and vitality in Ayodhya.
The river which is steeped in mythology, remains a revered place for the devotees who visit Ayodhya.
Flowing through the birthplace of Lord Ram adds to the sanctity of the Sapta Moksha Puri. It is one of the
seven tributaries of the river Ganga. It is considered so sacred that it washes away the impurities of humankind.
It is believed Lord Ram walked into the Sarayu river before he went to Vaikunth Lok, to become a deity in
heaven afterward. Thus, it is of significant importance in India with millions of devotees visiting the Sarayu
River around the year to take a holy dip, especially during various religious events & festivals
