On the sacred land of Ayodhya, resonating with the melodious sound of the Saryu River, the grandeur of Shri Ram Janmabhoomi Temple presents an epic of faith, whose voices narrate the history of centuries. Known as the birthplace of Lord Rama, this temple is not just a set of bricks and stones, but a mirror of the soul of India, where history, culture, and faith are bound together in a golden trinity. There seems to be a bright light in the future of Ram Mandir. Ayodhya, which will become the center of spirituality, culture, and tourism, will develop as a modern pilgrimage destination. This temple will not only contain the glorious past of India but will also create a bright future. Traditional culture will be confluent with modern facilities here.
Another chapter is going to be added to the name of Ayodhya which became Rammay. The whole of Ayodhya is getting decorated, Ram is Ram in Ayodhya, and bad things will happen. The gift of Ram temple, the divine court of Shri Ram. Only one voice echoing, 'Ram Rajya' is back. Ramnagari, rich in spirituality, is now going to write a new chapter of success. Before the consecration of Ram temple, the picture as well as the fate of Ayodhya has changed. Uttar Pradesh received investment proposals worth Rs 40 lakh crore at the Global Investors Summit. Along with this, Ayodhya has also climbed a new level of economic development. Ayodhya, the holy city of Uttar Pradesh, holds immense religious and historical significance as the birthplace of Lord Ram. It is mentioned in ancient texts like Ramayana and Mahabharata. For this reason, Ayodhya has also become an important pilgrimage site. The cultural identity of the city is deeply linked with its history and religious significance. In such a situation, it will prove to be very interesting for every Indian to know about it. Ayodhya is not a city, it is a faith. There is a dedication, there is a belief. There is a feeling that Ayodhya resides in every particle. Lord Ram resonates in the atmosphere of Ayodhya. The conch sound of Sanatan Dharma is the city of Shri Ram. This is a city of unbroken faith. From 1990 till now, the slogan of Ayodhya was that the city of Ayodhya belongs to Lord Ram. The Ram Janmabhoomi movement since then is a poignant testimony to the destruction at the roots of Hindu civilization and the difficult fight to reclaim it.
Talking about the ancient origin of Ayodhya, Ayodhya was earlier known as Saket. It has a rich heritage dating back to the fifth or sixth century BC. Situated on the banks of the Saryu River, Ayodhya has always attracted pilgrims, historians, and tourists who remain fascinated by its mythological and historical roots. According to Hindu mythology, Ayodhya was the capital of the ancient Kosala kingdom and the birthplace of Lord Rama. The city was described as a prosperous and harmonious kingdom, ruled by King Dasharatha. Ikshvaku, Prithu, Mandhata, Harishchandra, Sagar, Bhagiratha, Raghu, Dilip, Dasharatha, and Rama were among the famous rulers who ruled the capital of the Kaushal (Kosala) country. The culture and heritage of Ayodhya originate from the empire of Suryavanshis in the past. King Raghu was a brilliant character in the dynasty of Suryavanshi Kshatriyas, after whom Suryavansh became popular as Raghuvansh. In the third generation of King Raghu, Shri Ram was born, whose image still exists as God in the hearts of all Hindus. The period of Ramayana was probably the most glorious in the history of ancient India. This era not only witnessed the composition of the most sacred religious texts, the Vedas, and other sacred literature, which laid the foundation of Indian culture and civilization, but this era was also exemplary in the rule of law and truth.
The king was answerable to his subjects in matters related to the prestige of the state and society. The veracity of the facts remains rooted in the epic even after more than three millennia. Lord Ram was the 'ideal man' of Ramayana. His fourteen years of exile influenced the human mind more significantly than other periods of His life because He had forsaken His rightful inheritance and wandered in the wilderness, merely to maintain the honor of His Father's word. Apart from this, Ayodhya has also had a special place in Indian history. Therefore, Ayodhya is a prestigious place from a religious and historical point of view. Keeping in mind the historical importance of Ayodhya, the Central Government has taken up the responsibility of rejuvenating the religious city for the convenience of the tourists and residents coming here. On hearing the name of Ayodhya, the mind gets lost in the pages of Ramayana. This is the holy land where Lord Rama was born and important events of his life took place. For centuries, Ayodhya has been a center of faith for pilgrims and scholars, where temples and ashrams radiate the light of knowledge and spirituality. A chapter of the Mughal period left blood stains in the history of Ayodhya. The construction of the mosque on Ram Janmabhoomi sowed the seeds of controversy. Following tense events in 1992, the dispute reached the Supreme Court.
A historic decision came in 2019, which straightened the scales of justice. The Supreme Court ordered to hand over the disputed land to Ram Janmabhoomi Trust, paving the way for the construction of the temple. Ram Temple is not only the center of the faith of Hindus but also a symbol of India's cultural heritage. Lord Ram is the embodiment of ideals and morality, whose virtues flow across the country like the life-giving rivers of Indian culture. For millions of devotees, the Ram temple is a means of becoming pure by immersing themselves in the lake of life, religion, action, and truth. Coming here, they live the ideals of Ram, imbibe his qualities, and find the strength to face the realities of life. The construction of the grand Ram temple is a rewriting of history. This is not just a temple, but a golden chapter of cultural revival and national unity. The construction of the temple will not only provide employment opportunities but will also establish Ayodhya as a global pilgrimage destination. This temple is also an inspiring mantra of social harmony and religious tolerance. This will show that disputes can be resolved peacefully, and different communities can together contribute to nation-building. Here people of all religions can come peacefully, pray, and experience spiritual energy. There seems to be a bright light in the future of Ram Mandir. Ayodhya, which will become the center of spirituality, culture, and tourism, will develop as a modern pilgrimage destination. This temple will not only contain the glorious past of India but will also create a bright future. Traditional culture will be confluent with modern facilities here.
