It is the very ancient city of India which is about 6km away from Faizabad. Ayodhya is the birthplace of Lord Rama who was the seventh incarnation of Lord Vishnu. The great epic Ramayana is based on Ayodhya itself. According to references Ayodhya was named after Kind Ayudh who was the forefather of Lord Rama.

Ayodhya is also one of the seven holy cities of India. Read following lines of Sanskrit-

Ayodhyā Mathurā Māyā Kāsi Kāñchī Avantikā I

Every day thousands of Devotees of Lord Rama and tourists visit this holy city. No one can count the rush of people in the special event of Ayodhya. These special events take place in Shavan month called Lakshman Jhoola and Shri Ram Navmi (Birthday of Lord Rama). I recommend visiting Ayodhya for these special events.
