At a distance of 2 km from Ayodhya Junction, Dasrath Bhavan is a religious place situated in Ramkot Ayodhya. It is one of the popular places to visit as part of Ayodhya Packages.

Located in the heart of the city, Dashrath Bhavan is believed to have been constructed at the same place where the original palace of King Dashrath- the ruler of Ayodhya and father to Lord Sri Rama. Lord Ram along with his siblings spent their childhood and youth in this area. Popularly known as Bada Asthan or Badi Jagah, this pretty palace hosts a decorated and ornamented entrance with beautiful paintings.

The Bhavan houses a shrine with the idols of Shri Ram, Lakshman, and Sita. Within the palace, there are saffron-clad monks chanting mantras, singing, and dancing. Although the Bhavan appears much smaller than its original counterpart where King Dasrath might have lived, the Dashrath Bhavan is a definite magnet during festivities such as Ram Vivah, Karthik Mela, Diwali, Ram Navami, and Shravan Mela.
