Everything about Ayodhya's Sarayu, House of Abhinandan Lodha project


Many real estate developers in India are placing significant bets on the future potential of Ayodhya, the ancient city in Uttar Pradesh renowned for its profound significance in Hindu culture as the birthplace of Lord Ram. Numerous developers are gearing up to launch new projects in the area, with some having already secured a first-mover advantage, such as the House of Abhinandan Lodha (HoABL).

In December 2023, a Mumbai-based developer disclosed its intention to invest Rs 1,200 crore in Ayodhya for the creation of a luxurious 7-star mixed-use enclave. Having acquired a substantial 25-acre land parcel in the city for Rs 300 crore, the company is set to unveil its project on January 22, coinciding with the inauguration of the Ram Mandir.

Lying a 15-minute drive from the sacred Ayodhya Ram Mandir site and a half-hour drive from the Ayodhya Airport, the project named, The Sarayu, has already made waves. In fact, if media reports are to be believed, Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan has already purchased a plot in the project. The mega star has reportedly paid Rs 14.5 crore to book a 10,000 square foot plot in the upcoming project.  Bachchan, who is from Prayagraj (erstwhile Allahabad) in Uttar Pradesh, already owns several properties in state capital Lucknow and the adjoining Barabanki district.
