Ayodhya gears up for rush of devotees on Ram Navami

Ayodhya gears up for the upcoming Ram Navami festival, expecting the largest influx of devotees yet. The event, celebrating Lord Ram’s birth, will be held on April 17. The administration and Ram Janmabhoomi Trust are working together to ensure safety, comfort, and smooth entry for all pilgrims.

Meetings between the Trust members and district administration are focusing on crowd control strategies and serving the pilgrims arriving in Ayodhya before and after the festival. Efforts include multiple entries and exits, medical facilities, traffic management, and essential supplies for the devotees staying in dharamshalas, temples, and hotels.

Anil Mishra, trustee of Ram Temple Trust, mentioned that a comprehensive plan is being prepared to address security concerns, provide easy darshan to devotees, and ensure a hassle-free experience for all visitors. Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath is personally overseeing the arrangements to guarantee the best management for the event.


The celebration will commence with a sunrise prayer to the sun, followed by a special midday prayer to mark Lord Ram’s birth. Devotional songs in praise of Lord Ram will be sung, and Rath yatras of Ram, Sita, Lakshman, and Hanuman will be carried out. People will gather at the banks of the Saryu river for a holy dip in festivities.

With elaborate arrangements in place for crowd control, safety measures, medical facilities, sanitation, and essential supplies, the administration is prepared to welcome and accommodate the large number of devotees expected to gather in Ayodhya for the Ram Navami celebrations.
