Ayodhya, also known as Saketa, is an ancient city of India, believed to be the birthplace of Rama and the setting of the epic Ramayana. It is adjacent to Faizabad city in the central region of the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh. Ayodhya used to be the capital of the ancient Kosala Kingdom. It has an average elevation of 93 meters. Owing to the belief as to the birthplace of Rama, Ayodhya has been regarded as one of the seven most important pilgrimage sites for Hindus. The Ayodhya dispute concerns the activism by the Hindu groups to rebuild a Rama's temple at the site.
