The recently constructed Ram Mandir in Ayodhya is scheduled to commence public access on January 23. The Indian Railways plans to run over 1,000 different parts of the country to establish connectivity between Ayodhya and diverse regions and cities, encompassing Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai, Bangalore, Pune, Kolkata, Nagpur, Lucknow, and Jammu 

The operation of these trains will commence on January 19, just days before the Ram Mandir temple's opening, facilitating the travel of pilgrims to and from the holy city. 


To get ready for lots of visitors, the Ayodhya train station has been fixed up and made better. If more trains are needed, they can bring them in depending on how many people want to travel. Some trains are set aside just for groups of people going on pilgrimages. Also, the Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC) is all set to provide food services all day and night. They've set up many food stalls to make sure there's enough tasty food for all the pilgrims. 

In addition to the spiritual experience at the Ram Mandir temple, pilgrims will have the opportunity to enjoy a unique ride on an electric catamaran on the holy Saryu river. The catamaran, capable of accommodating 100 people, adds an extra dimension to the pilgrimage experience in Ayodhya.
