Yogi inspects tent cities in Ayodhya for convenience of devotees

Ayodhya (UP), Jan 19 (UNI) Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Friday inspected Panchvati Ashray Sthal and two other tent cities in Ayodhya and took stock of the arrangements being made for the devotees.

During inspection, the CM directed that devotees coming to these tent cities should not face any problems. The UP government has set up Panchavati Ashray Sthal in view of the expected influx of devotees from all over the country after the upcoming consecration ceremony in Ayodhya.

Being run by Ayodhya Municipal Corporation, the Panchavati Ashray Sthal can accommodate up to 2,500 people. Pilgrims will not have to spend even a single rupee on staying and eating here.

Yogi inspected the tent city of the Awas Vikas Parishad near Surya Palace and next to Dharmu Ka Purwa. During this, he also visited the Panchvati Ashray Sthal near the Hanuman Gufa intersection. He took stock of the preparations and gave necessary directions.

The Panchvati Ashray Sthal has been fully arranged for the stay and meals of the pilgrims. Upon entering here, the first thing one sees is a large ‘khadau’ (wooden footwear), which is made in memory of Lord Ram’s wooden footwear from the Treta Yuga, which was placed on the throne by his brother Bharat, who managed the kingdom of Ayodhya.

In front of it, the bow and arrow (kodanda) of Lord Ram have also been installed on the left side. These symbolize the faith of the devotees in Lord Ram. The entire premises display paintings and other mediums depicting memories related to Lord Ram, elevating the devotion of those who come here to a unique level.

Within the Panchvati Ashray Sthal, constructed as a tent city, arrangements have been made for the stay and accommodation of 2,000 people. A large number of folding beds have been laid out in the Ashray Sthal.

Along with each folding bed, mattresses, sheets, pillows, blankets, and quilts will also be provided. Inside the tent city, keeping in mind the faith of the devotees, images of Lord Ram and Hanuman will be displayed.

Separate arrangements have been made for women and men, and separate facilities have been provided for toilets and other daily activities. There is also an excellent arrangement for the food of the pilgrims.

Pilgrims intending to stay at the Panchvati Ashray Sthal must complete the registration. After registration, they can stay there for the next 48 hours. Registration can be done either over the phone or in person.

The government has taken care of both the convenience and security of the pilgrims. CCTV cameras have been installed, and control rooms have been established for monitoring.
