The river Saryu, also known as Ghagra, a tributary of the Ganga marks the northern boundary of the town. Ayodhya has a railway station and the National Highway 28 skirts the town on its the eastern periphery. The nearest airport is in Faizabad.

A temple town, Ayodhya is dotted with temples and ghats on the banks of the river Saryu, but there are only a few educational institutions. The largest being the Kasu Saket PG College. The nearest university is the Dr Ram Manohar Lohia Avadh University in Faizabad.

The disputed site, where the Babri Masjid once stood, is now strongly guarded and an area of 47 acres around the site is barricaded with barbed wire and steel fences.
