Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav-headed Cabinet meeting has decided to give approval for the construction of an International theme park in Ayodhya.

The world class theme Park at Ayodhya will be built in the International Ramlila Centre to develop Ayodhya as a top tourist destination. Akhilesh Yadav had earlier sanctioned the construction of amphitheatre and Bhajan Sandhya Sthal in the temple town with Rs 15 crore in August 2016.

“We want it to be a museum where people from around the world come, and get an insight into Lord Ram’s life and the Ramayana” Union Cultural Minister Mahesh Sharma told News Nation.

"The tourism ministry has sanctioned 225 crore under Ramayana circuit and Ramayana museum will be a part of it. Out of this, Rs 151 crore will exclusively be spent for Ramayana museum in Ayodhya," he added.
