Ayodhya hills Purulia

Ajodhya Hills is located in the Purulia district of the state West Bengal, India. According to Hindu mythology, Rama and Sita had come to Ayodhya Hills and stayed during their exile. Sita was thirsty and Ram pierced an arrow through the Earth's soil crust and through that water gushed out. Sita quenched her thirst. People here work in the forests and live a very simple life which always fascinated me. The scenic beauty of this place is amazing.
