After the historic verdict by the Supreme court on 9th November in favour of Ramjanambhoomi Nyas, there is a festive atmosphere in the Ayodhya air. The building of a grand Ram temple in the premises will make it a major tourist attraction for the world.
The UP government has already chalked out an extensive plan to make it a cultural and sacred site for pilgrims from around the world. It has been estimated that the plan will take four years to come into being.
An international airport has been proposed for instant connectivity, which will be inaugurated on Ram Navami next year. The railway station too is going to get a chic makeover with 100 crores granted by the Modi government.
Ayodhya Mayor Rakesh Upadhyay said, “The government is finalising development programs for Ayodhya on a large scale. The development plan will be made public very soon once it is finalised.”
Furthermore, a bus terminus with an expandable capacity of 3,000 to 4,000 buses is also underway and is awaiting the Chief Minister’s approval. Sources indicate that the Culture and Tourism department has proposed a 13-kilometer long corridor on the life of Lord Ram. A cruise on the Saryu river is also proposed, which will offer a scenic view to tourists and devotees who come to Ayodhya. Meanwhile, five-star hotels and resorts are also expected to come up in the temple town.
A proposal to include 41 nearby villages into Ayodhya has also been sent to the government by the Ayodhya Municipal Corporation. Earlier the proposal was to include only 22 villages.
It has been reported that the state government is likely to rope in a force of more than 2,000 labourers for the completion of construction of the Ram temple.
