Ayodhya

Metropolitan City in Uttar Pradesh, India

Ayodhya    ▸ Facts   ▸ Comments   ▸ News   ▸ Videos   

Ayodhya: Metropolitan City in Uttar Pradesh, India
Ayodhya is a city and the administrative headquarters of Faizabad district of Uttar Pradesh, India. It shares municipal corporation with its neighbouring twin town of Faizabad. The city is identified with the legendary city of Ayodhya, and as such, is the birthplace of Rama and setting of the epic Ramayana. The accuracy of this identification is central to the Ayodhya dispute: modern scholars variously believe that the present-day Ayodhya is same as the legendary Ayodhya, or that the legendary city is a mythical place that came to be identified with the present-day Ayodhya only during the Gupta period around the 4th-5th century CE.
