Ayodhya Hills in the district of Purulia, West Bengal is an amazing tourist destination known for its natural beauty. Ayodhya hills are an extension of the Dalma range in Jharkhand. Each year hundreds of tourists visit the hills to witness the scenic beauty of the forests in and around Ayodhya hills. The hills are covered with dense forests with a variety of flora and fauna. The dense forests are a home to different species of wild animals. Gorshabru is the highest peak in Ayodhya and stands tall at an altitude of 610 meters. The presence of numerous waterfalls amidst the forests makes them even more beautiful.
The Bankura Botanical Garden is situated 21 kilometers away from Beliator, the census town of Bankura. There is an amazing feeling of opting for a night stay at the Bon Bungalow, nearby, situated at Churamanipur which can be reached by turning right from the Makra Road.
The thick forests adorning the right hand side of the bungalow is a natural habitat of birds regaling you with their incessant murmurs. The prominent trees are Minjir, Sal, Muhua, Aakashmoni, Kendu, Shimul, Shirish, Palash among others. There is a hamlet, situated at a distance of 2 kilometers on the left hand side of the bungalow.
There are herds of elephants frequenting this area (from Dalma) in search of food as well. It is famous for being the meeting place of “boul singers” coming together for the occasion of Kartik puja (a worshipping festival dedicated to God Kartik). The place is also famous for sericulture.
