His visit to the disputed place comes a day after senior BJP leaders LK Advani, Murli Manohar Joshi and union Minister Uma Bharti along with 9 others were charged by a special CBI court with conspiracy to demolish the Babri mosque in 1992.
Officials, however, said that there was no link between the court proceedings and Adityanath's visit to Ayodhya and said that it was pre-scheduled.
The Chief Minister was supposed to take part in the birthday celebrations of Mahant Nritya Gopal Das, head of the Ram Janma Bhoomi Nyaas, which led the Ram temple movement in the 1990s.
