Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan has made headlines by purchasing a plot in Ayodhya for a staggering Rs 14.5 crore. The plot, located in The Sarayu, a seven-star mixed-use enclave, is set to become the site for his new home. This development has garnered significant attention as it precedes the ‘Pran Prathista’ ceremony of the Ram Mandir, scheduled for January 22. Mr. Bachchan, aged 81, has expressed a deep emotional connection with Ayodhya, describing it as a city that “holds a special place in my heart.”

The purchase in Ayodhya is not just a real estate investment but a journey into the essence of the city for Bachchan. He commented, “Ayodhya’s eternal spirituality and cultural richness have created an emotional bond that crosses geographic boundaries. This is the beginning of a profound journey into the essence of Ayodhya, where tradition and modernity coexist harmoniously, weaving an emotional tapestry that truly connects with me.” This statement highlights his emotional ties to the city, renowned for its spiritual and cultural significance.

The Sarayu project, where Bachchan’s plot is located, is expected to be completed by March 2028. It will include a five-star palace hotel in collaboration with Brookfield Group-owned Leela Palaces, Hotels, and Resorts, providing a luxurious and culturally rich environment. The project aims to blend traditional elements with modern luxury, resonating with Bachchan’s vision for his home in Ayodhya.

As Bachchan prepares to build his 10,000 square feet home in this global spiritual capital, Ayodhya, a city with significant religious and historical significance, is about to undergo a transformative phase. The construction of the Ram Mandir, which is a project of national interest, is expected to boost tourism and infrastructure development in the region. High-profile investments like that of Bachchan’s highlight Ayodhya’s growing importance as a cultural and spiritual destination and signal a positive trend in real estate investment in the area.
