Spread over a vast area, this complex is supposed to be the birth place of Lord Ram, which was later on discovered by Vikramaditya. Presently, there is some dispute and the matter is subjudice. A large contingent of security forces guards this area and one has to pass through many security barriers to reach here and only some part of the area is accessible to the tourists. Many important places are part of this complex but are not accessible to tourists, such as; Sita Rasoi- From the lower cell of the Ram Janm Bhumi temple a ladder leads to Sita Rasoi. The place displays the idol of Sita, rolling pin made of stone & some other articles of that period. Keikai Bhawan- Here lies the ruins of Keikai Bhawan. It is believed that Queen Keikai gave birth to Bharat, one of the sons of King Dashrath of Ayodhya, here. Sumitra Bhawan is also situated nearby. Keikai Kop Bhawan- Lies adjoining Kaushalya Bhawan. It houses the idol of Queen Keikai in reclining posture with the idols of Lord Ram, Sita & Laxman on their way to 14 years exile. Angad Tila, Sita Koop, Lav Kush Temple, Amamvan Temple, Kaushalya Bhawan, Rang Mahal are also situated inside & adjoining area of Ram Janm Bhumi.
