Though this entire Punyadharitri of Ayodhya and its suburb Saketa is soaked in Rama mahima i.e. Vaishnavism, it is not bereft of Saivate temples, nor is it inimical towards Saivates. There are many Sivaalayas here and there and moreover some Vaishnavate temples are also housing Sivalingas or images of Parvathi, Eswar, Ganesh and Subrahmanya. Sectarian dogmatism is conscious by its absence. Would Rama endure fanaticism in any shape ? That Dharmavathar holds the scales even eternally. This is evidenced by the existence of Nageswara Mahadev shrine on the Swargadwara Ram ghat, one of many pious bathing ghats that the holy Sarayu river is provided with. This shrine is dedicated to Mahadev and it goes by the name of Nageswar Mahadev mandir. It enshrines an enchanting Sivalinga. So pilgrims taking bath in the Sarayu, offer their first prayer to Siva only. What an oddity that in a Vaishnavate kshetra, Prathama puja is offered to Siva ! This is the true spirit of Catholocity that Hinduism embodies and teaches. And Indianness pervading here in its untained state. Kudos to the saint seers, who not only advocated universality through their immortal writings, but caused the erection of temples to putting into practice their ennobling high ideals.

It is a famous All-India pilgrim centre, commanding all transport facilities from any corner of the world. The last rail head is Fizabad from where journey can be made by auto, taxi, bus or even by Tonga.
