Ayodhya Hill: Dr B.C. Roy, the second Chief Minister of West Bengal had dreamt of setting up a hilltown on the base of this hill. That dream could never be converted into reality. However, young mountaineers come to Ayodhya hill for learning the basic course in mountaineering. This hill in the district of Purulia is around 700 m high. From Bankura, one can reach Purulia by bus or train. From Purulia take a bus to Sirkabad-26 km away from Purulia. Then trek to the hill for a distance of 14 km. Sirkabad is a small place within the forest. One can stay at the Forest Rest House which can be booked in Purulia. However for genuine trekkers, it is better to take a longer but more adventurous route. Take a bus from Purulia to Balarampur. From Balarampur 19 km dist. is Matha, another 6 km is Bagmundi hills and from there another 9 km trek to Ayodhya hill. As an added attraction, visitors are enthralled by the brook, and water falls. Ayodhya hill can be reached from Calcutta by train (How-rah-Chakradharpur Passenger) to Balarampur or by Howrah-Ranchi-Hatia Exp to Suisa. From Suisa take a bus to Bagmundi hill which is only 25 km away. From Bagmundi either trek or hire a van or jeep to Ayodhya hill. It can be reached from Mukut-manipur also by bus via Khatra and Jhilimili. In this range there are many small hills namely Gorgabunu (900 m), Mayuri etc. It is said that during their period of exile, Ram-chandra and Sita had come to this place and stayed. Sita was thirsty and Ram pierced an arrow through the earth's soil crust and through that water gushed out and Sita quenched her thirst. The place is known as Sita-kunda. During the full moon day in Baisakh every year tribals of nearby area come and join in the game of hunting wild animals. There is a small hydel project at Bandhgho-tu. Now-a-days there is a project of sericulture development sponsored by the Govt. of West Bengal.
