Ayodhya is a legendary spiritual centre on the banks of River Saryu that attracts the visitors with its serene ghats and countless temples. Situated in the Faizabad district, Ayodhya is counted as one of the seven sacred cities in the Hindu faith. Being the birthplace of Lord Rama and the five of Jainism’s 24 Tirthankaras, this land has many mythological and sacred bonds. According to the epic Ramayana, Ayodhya was home to the Ikshvaku dynasty, from which Lord Rama, the most illustrious of its rulers is said to have descended. Ayodhya is a significant spiritual centre for other faiths as well, Jainism in particular. The buzz of life as usual, fervour of visiting devotees, chiming temple bells and melodious chanting, all offer Ayodhya a singular spiritual ambience. Home to countless multi-faith temples, as many Dharamshalas(hermitages) and Akhadas (resting places for sadhu), the place is further enlivened by presence of all manner of supplicant, sage, scholar and such like.

Quite impressed by Lucknow as a city - great roads, a charming historical feel, some green pockets. Tempted to travel around UP!
I decided to visit the Taj Mahal. I've always wanted to see this. It is even more stunning than I expected. It's incredible what people can build and what love can motivate us to build.
The power of the Kashi Vishwanath temple hit us! Incredibly powerful. So greatful to the divine universal spirit of all.
