ShopClues recently launched the Holy Ayodhya application, a collaboration between the Ayodhya Development Authority and ShopClues.com, with the aim of redefining travel experiences for pilgrims and visitors seeking spiritual and cultural enrichment in this divine land. The occasion was graced by the Honorable Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh, Shri Yogi Adityanath, who launched the Holy Ayodhya application.
Since its inception, there has been a rapid increase in its network, now granting access to approximately 250 homestay properties, collectively offering over 1200 rooms. During the first 5 days of January 2024 app, we’ve secured around 100 bookings, signaling an encouraging start, offering convenience and easy access to customers. With the inauguration of the Ram Mandir scheduled for this month, we foresee a significant surge in travel to Ayodhya from every corner of the nation. Forecasts indicate a doubling in the daily footfall to Ayodhya in the upcoming months.
“Holy Ayodhya” aims to become the ultimate application for pilgrims, offering a platform to discover budget-friendly homestays. Homestays, as cultural ambassadors, play a pivotal role in spreading the essence of the region. Through “Holy Ayodhya,” visitors will be able to find affordable accommodation and assist them in delving into the rich culture of Ayodhya. They can savor authentic Awadhi delicacies like the renowned Awadhi Thali, among other regional delights, during their stay.
By December 2024, our platform aims to expand to include approximately 1000 homestay properties, significantly broadening the spectrum of budget-friendly accommodation options for visitors.
