Soon, Indian Railways’ Ayodhya railway station is all set to get a world-class makeover! The Ayodhya railway station, which falls under the Northern Railway zone, is currently being modelled on the Ram temple and various new passenger-friendly features are being introduced to provide the best service and facilities to the visiting pilgrims. Incidentally, PM Narendra Modi is expected to attend the groundbreaking ceremony of the Ram temple in Ayodhya this week. Since the city of Ayodhya is one of the most important religious places in the country, Indian Railways will provide direct connectivity from Lucknow, Varanasi as well as other religious places in the nearby areas. In the coming future, the Ayodhya Circuit is likely to be the country’s biggest tourist hub. The phase 1 of the station development project is being executed at a cost of Rs 104 crore.
Under phase 1 of the Ayodhya railway station development project, a grand station building with a contemporary façade will be developed. The first phase is expected to be complete by June 2021, according to a PTI report. The built-up area will be 100000 sq ft with all modern facilities.
