What's new at Ayodhya Dham Junction
The grand railway station will comprise lifts, a tourist information centre, and medical facilities. All types of extensive preparations are being completed. Refurbished platforms, new signboards, escalators, and murals of Lord Ram painted on walls--these and many more would be the features of the Ayodhya railway station after the ongoing revamp.
This railway station is said to have as much mythological importance as much as it is modern. It is built like a grand temple from the outside and is equipped with equally modern facilities from the inside.
