It is believed that on April 10, 3 days ahead of Ram Navami, Ayodhya will be flooded with devotees.
In such a situation, keeping in mind that the devotees of Lord Ram do not face any inconvenience during darshan, a decision has been taken at a joint meeting of the officers of Shri Ram Janam Bhoomi Teerth Kshetra Trust and the district administration.
