New Delhi: The Modi government’s plan to set up a Ramayana Museum in Ayodhya in poll-bound Uttar Pradesh has gathered steam with a 25 acre plot having been identified for it some 15 km away from the disputed Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid complex.

Tourism minister Mahesh Sharma is expected to visit Ayodhya on October 18 to inspect the proposed site where the government plans to build the museum, which would be part of Ramayana Circuit, a government source said.
