The Uttar Pradesh government recently changed the name of Ayodhya railway station, and now the international airport will be named ‘Maharishi Valmiki International Airport Ayodhya Dham’.

Ayodhya, one of the holiest cities in India, is all set to get its first international airport, which would further help in promoting the pilgrimage site and give a boost to tourism in the state.

PM Narendra Modi will inaugurate the newly built Ayodhya Airport today.

Phase 1 of the state-of-the-art airport is developed at a cost of more than Rs 1,450 crore. The airport’s terminal building will have an area of 6500 sqm, equipped to serve about 10 lakh passengers annually. The facade of the terminal building depicts the temple architecture of the upcoming Shri Ram Mandir of Ayodhya. The interiors of the terminal building are decorated with local art, paintings, and murals depicting the life of Bhagwan Shri Ram.
