For the upcoming Ramotsav 2024, Ayodhya is transforming its landscape, introducing a modern tent city that even outshines luxury hotels. This tent city, developed by the Ayodhya Development Authority (ADA), aims to provide pilgrims with a unique blend of comfort and a sense of the sacred surroundings of Ayodhya.
The tent city offers double occupancy luxury tents with amenities akin to upscale hotels. Placed amidst the serene ambiance of nature, it allows devotees to experience the rich heritage of both ancient and modern Ayodhya.
Scheduled to accommodate thousands of pilgrims, the tent city strategically spreads across key locations like Brahma Kund, Ram Katha Park, Bag Bijesi, Karsevakpuram, and Maniram Das Ki Chavni, catering to various categories of devotees.
In preparation for the grand ceremony at the magnificent Ram Mandir on January 22, 2024, where the idol of Lord Rama will be consecrated, Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath's vision and ADA's efforts are resulting in the development of various facilities in Ayodhya. One of these notable developments is the introduction of modern tent cities.
With tent cities like Heritage Cottage Stay, Ayodhya is gearing up to become a haven for pilgrims. Spread across different locations, these double occupancy luxury and semi-luxury suites offer pilgrims a chance to immerse themselves in the essence of Ayodhya.
As pilgrims converge on Ayodhya for the grand event, tent cities near important landmarks such as Brahma Kund, Ram Katha Park, and Bag Bijesi are being set up to provide a comfortable stay for the devotees. Additionally, Karsevakpuram and Maniram Das Ki Chavni will also host tent cities to accommodate the influx of worshippers.
To tantalize the taste buds of the pilgrims, these tent cities are set to serve a variety of culinary delights, with a special focus on Awadhi and Banarasi cuisines. Pilgrims can savor dishes made from millets, coarse grains, and seasonal vegetables, along with a selection of local delicacies like Bajre ki Roti, Matra ka Nimona, Baati-Chokha, and Moong Khichdi.
The interiors of these wooden deck-based tents boast luxurious amenities such as comfortable seating, sofas, dining lounges, personal vaults, room heaters, air conditioning, and high-speed internet. The tents are designed for a long durability, operational for up to 10 years after installation.
In addition to comfortable accommodations, pilgrims will also have access to a bonfire, an open-air theater for cultural events, and a souvenir shop. The overall ambiance and facilities aim to provide a memorable and spiritually enriching experience for the devotees visiting Ayodhya during Ramotsav 2024.
