The easy credence in the narrations of early European travellers and British administrators about the story of Rāma that describe a path trodden by countless pilgrims and the devotions undertaken by them at Ayōdhyā since times of yore +
..is unlike the way this longstanding belief of millions has been assailed by latter day academicians [and the courts] who have raised questions on the antiquity to which the tradition traces its origin and the historicity of its central character Rāma +
..a millennia old conventional truth—and every single facet of it—weighed by present day evidential liability and documentary rigour incompatible with the dynamic character of Hinduism, in a way the beliefs of no other people are attacked.
An authoritative religious history of the Hindus and the growth of the pilgrimage centres revered by them has been lacking owing to the proclivity of established historians to denigrate the written sources that constitute its primary reference material.
By gleaning information provided in the sacred literature relating to pilgrimage spots, namely the sthalapurāñas, it is however possible to reconstruct a definitive history of the places sanctified in Hindu belief.
