Ghats in Ayodhya , India

Ghats in Ayodhya, India

Guptar Ghat, Raj Ghat, Ram Ghat, Lakshman Ghat, Janki Ghat, and Naya Ghat are the main ghats of Ayodhya.

Swarg Dwar :

Swarg Dwar or Ram Ghat is an important bathing ghat. As per Hindu mythology, Lord Rama is said to have been cremated here. The strip of land from Sahastradhara to Nageshwarnath temple is commonly known as Swargdwar. The buildings on the Ghat facing the river were mainly built during the reign of Nawab Safa Jung and his Hindu minister Naval Rai. The buildings and the ghats offer a fine view. In recent years, the river bed has shifted northwards, leaving the Ghats; therefore the new Ghats were built around 1960 along the new bridge. It is popularly known as ‘Pairi’ and offers an excellent view from the bridge.

Lakshmana Ghat :

The ghat is on the banks of the Sarayu River. This is where Rama's brother Lakshman is said to have voluntarily given up his life-an act called Samadhi. Another version says that he gave up living after he broke a vow.

Jain Shrines :

Ayodhya is the birth place of five Tirthankaras with several Jain temples. Kesari singh, the treasurer of nawab faizabad, had built five shrines to mark the birth place of these Tirthankaras

Rama Janmabhoomi:

Rama Janma Bhoomi has a small temple of Lord Ram and is believed to be the place where Lord Ram was born. It is believed to be discovered by King Vikramaditya.

Ram Katha Museum :

Ram katha museum is engaged in collection preservation and conservation of antiquities rated to the story of Lord Rama. Ramkatha museum was established at Ayodhya since 1988.

Guptar Ghat

Gupta Ghat is a religious place located in Faizabad, Uttar Pradesh. This is the place where the stone stairs are taken to the river Saryu.

This Ghat is considered very sacred in Hindus, because this Ghat has the belief that Lord Rama had taken the water to this place to leave the earth and entered the holy house of Lord Vishnu or Baikunda.

In addition to mythological importance, the beautiful view of the river Sariu along with many small temples is amazing.
