AYODHYA
The Earthly August Seat of Dharma

THE SARAYU RIVER

Ayodhya lies on the hanks of the famous Sarayu river, taking `its origin in the Kumayun mountains and is also called Gongra. It finds a reverent mention in the Rig Veda along with Sindhu and Saraswati. It as here on the banks of that self-same holy river Rama was born, nurtured and finally ended his life, making it all the more holy. Realising its holiness, yatris go to it for ceremonial both. For facilitating easy bath in Sarayu, many ghats with broad embankments and sturdy flights of stairs are built by philanthropists from time to  time. Among them Ramghat, Lakshmanghat, Sugrivghat and I Angadghat are specially famous. lnvariably pilgrims take a dip at Swargadwara Rarnghat. The Saiva shrine of Nageswara Mahadev adjoining this lures them first. Another temple Darsaneswar situated in the garden is also worth-seeing. Offering prayers to Siva lingas and other images of gods, they walk straight to 'Hanumangati.
