Nothing apart from Ram Janambhoomi in Ayodhya is as mesmerizing as Ramkot. The place evokes same sentiments and emotions among the followers as Ram Janambhoomi. In fact, it is the most frequented religious site in Ayodhya.

This is precisely because Ramkot is the site of the ancient citadel of Ramkot that stands on an elevated ground in the western part of the city. The place marks the site of Lord Ram's fort that once existed. This the same place where Lord Rama was bestowed with the kingdom and kinship of 'Koshala'. Pilgrims throughout the year frequent the place. Nevertheless, the sheer festive mood that engulfs it on the day of Ram Navami or the Birthday of Rama is spectacular. This festival is celebrated with much fanfare in the Hindu month of Chaitra.
