In fact, ayodhya is expected to become a hub for religious tourism in the coming years, based on data made public by the Tourism Department. This department claims that during the past few years, there has been a noticeable increase in the number of tourists visiting the area.

About three lakh tourists visited ayodhya in 2021. which, in 2022, grew to 2.39 crore after a year, and in 2023, this figure reached 31.5 crore.
