As per the latest development, Ayodhya is all set to have a beach of its own. If reports are to go by, the Uttar Pradesh Housing Department has given green light to the proposal put forth by the local development authority to establish a chowpatty at Ram Ki Paidi, along one of the banks of the Saryu River in Ayodhya.

This initiative by the Ayodhya Development Authority (ADA) is all set to transform the riverside into a vibrant space, offering a variety of hygienically prepared food items.

To materialise this vision, the ADA is diligently working on developing multiple temporary structures and designated zones for food carts at Ram Ki Paidi. A senior officer from the authority explained, “The idea is to create multiple temporary structures, zones for housing food carts and covered spots under canopies or pergolas at Ram Ki Paidi.” The emphasis will be on hygiene and quality that is evident in the preparations being made.

Reports further add that a tender has been floated to kickstart the construction at the site, whereas the chosen agency will have a six-month window to complete the civil works. Post this phase, the space will be allocated to food vendors, injecting life into the newly created chowpatty.

Reports also add that the project has been allocated a budget of approximately INR 4.66 crore, which will be covering various aspects, such as basic infrastructure, sanitation, electrification, firefighting, water supply, parking zones, horticulture, and a paved entry route.

In addition to the structural elements, the contractor will be tasked with providing seating capacity for a minimum of 50 individuals at the site, ensuring that visitors can comfortably enjoy the riverside ambience. This endeavour is part of the broader plan by the civic body in Ayodhya to enhance the recreational spaces along the Saryu River, with the transformation of one bank into a ‘chowpatty.’

With the Uttar Pradesh Housing Department’s approval and the proactive steps taken by the ADA, the development of Ram Ki Paidi as a chowpatty is poised to become a vibrant addition to Ayodhya’s landscape, offering both locals and visitors a delightful waterfront experience.
