Visitor influx expected to soar in Ayodhya ahead of Ram Temple inauguration

Anticipated to experience a significant surge, the influx of visitors to Ayodhya is expected to soar dramatically following the imminent opening of the Ram temple in the town next month. Commencing its construction in August 2020, nearly nine months after the Supreme Court delivered its verdict in the longstanding Babri Masjid-Ram Janmabhoomi conflict, the temple has garnered widespread attention.

The consecration ceremony for the Ram temple is scheduled for January 22, with invitations extended to various prominent personalities from diverse fields. Prior to the temple's inauguration, Prime Minister Narendra Modi is set to inaugurate the Maryada Purshottam Shri Ram International Airport in Ayodhya on December 30.
