Govt identifies 25 acre plot for Ramayana museum in Ayodhya

Press Trust of India  |  New Delhi 

The Modi government's plan to set up a Museum in Ayodhya in poll-bound has gathered steam with a 25 acre plot having been identified for it some 15 km away from the disputed Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid complex.

Tourism Minister is expected to visit Ayodhya on October 18 to inspect the proposed site where the government plans to build the museum, which would be part of Circuit, a government source said.



Sharma is also expected to hold a meeting with Circuit Advisory Board during the visit. The meeting would discuss routes for connecting Ramayana-related sites in and with the proposed museum.

Besides, the minister is likely to hold meetings with religious leaders on building the museum which would portray the journey of Lord Rama.

Sharma would also deliberate on plans for an International Conclave, which would be held either in Ayodhya or Chitrakoot district. The conference is likely to be attended by delegates from about 12 countries, sources said.

Though the BJP has been insisting that Ram temple will not be an electoral plank in the UP elections to be held early next year, the proposed museum and related activities are being seen as an attempt to keep pro-Hindutva elements in good humour.

On Dusshera, Prime Minister had, in a departure from tradition, participated in the festivities in Lucknow where he started and concluded his speech with chants of "Jai Shri Ram, Jai Jai Shri Ram".
