Synopsis


The religio-urban life of Ayodhya is attractive. Being the birthplace of Rama, it becomes a rich field of special interest. This book presents its culture in historical perspective. Rama's ancestors who had founded the city are mentioned in the Rgveda. Its remote antiquity is proved also by the OCP which has been found from Srngaverapura, another old town of the region. Both the cities had contacts with each other. Saketa, a part of Ayodhya, was established on the bank of river Sarayu during the sixth century BC. For a long period, Lord Buddha and the Jaina Tirthankaras had made it their dharmaksetra. The Ramayana and the Ayodhya, series of coins tell about the re-emergence of Ayodhya.

Some of them had made it their home.
The Pauranika phase of Ayodhya is described in detail. By the time of the Guptas, it has emerged as a great centre of Hindu pilgrimage.
