Learn About Guptar Ghat

Ram Ki Paidi is a series of ancient ghats, or a series of steps leading down to a water body, located on the banks of the Sarayu river in Ayodhya, Uttar Pradesh, India. Much like the ghats of Varanasi, Ram Ki Paidi is a sacred place for Hindus and holds immense religious and historical significance.

Legend has it that Lord Rama, an avatar of the deity Vishnu and the protagonist of the epic Ramayana, took birth in Ayodhya. Thus, Ram Ki Paidi holds special importance for the devotees who come here to take a holy dip in the river, believing it will cleanse their sins.

Over the years, the ghats have been renovated and beautified, retaining their old-world charm while accommodating modern facilities. During festivals, especially Diwali, the place illuminates with thousands of earthen lamps, offering a surreal and divine spectacle. The celebration marks the homecoming of Lord Rama to Ayodhya after his 14-year exile and his victory over the demon king Ravana. The ghats echo with chants, prayers, and rituals, making Ram Ki Paidi not just a place of worship but also a testament to India’s rich cultural and religious tapestry.

  • Cultural Confluence: Apart from religious activities, the ghats have been venues for various cultural programs, showcasing the blend of spirituality with arts, especially during festivals.
  • Fauna: The aquatic life in the Sarayu river near the ghats includes a variety of fish species, some of which have religious significance to the locals.

How to Reach

Here’s how to reach Ram Ki Padi in Ayodhya:

  • By Road: Ayodhya is well-connected by road with most major cities in Uttar Pradesh and the rest of North India. From Lucknow, which is the state capital of Uttar Pradesh, Ayodhya is about 135 km away, and the journey can be made via NH 330. Once you reach Ayodhya, you can easily find local conveyance or directions to Ram Ki Padi.
  • By Train: Ayodhya has its own railway station: Ayodhya Junction (AY). This station has train connectivity from many major cities of India. Once you reach the Ayodhya railway station, Ram Ki Padi is not far away, and you can reach there by auto-rickshaws, cycle rickshaws, or cabs available outside the station.
  • By Flight: The nearest major airport to Ayodhya is Chaudhary Charan Singh International Airport in Lucknow (LKO). Once you land in Lucknow, you can hire a cab or take other road transport to reach Ayodhya. There were also plans to develop an airport in Ayodhya itself, so by 2023, there may be more direct flight options. You would need to check current flight services to Ayodhya if any.
