Ayodhya Haat will be another attraction in temple town
An Ayodhya Haat will come up at Chaudhary Charan Singh Ghat on the bank of river Saryu, adding another feature to the temple town’s long list of tourist attractions.
The Ayodhya Development Authority will spearhead this project to turn the religious town into a tourist destination.
The Ayodhya Haat would also bring change in areas surrounding the ghat, said officials of the Ayodhya Development Authority.
Announcing the project, Divisional Commissioner of Ayodhya Gaurav Dayal stated that the project would spur local economy also.
The Ayodhya Haat will have specially designed stalls offering handicrafts of local artisans. It will also have a floating restaurant and boat services as added attraction for tourists.
Ram Kutir cottages will come up for those who want to stay at the ghat. A jetty will also come up at the Chaudhary Charan Singh ghat.
Cultural programmes, laser shows and musical fountains will add to Ayodhya Haat’s beauty.
Dayal assured that the highest standards of cleanliness and environmental practices would be maintained at the Haat. This project is part of the Yogi Adityanath government’s initiative to transform Ayodhya into a prominent religious tourist destination.
The Ayodhya administration is expecting substantial increase in the number of tourists after Ram temple is opened for devotees in January next. (Source The HT)
