Uttar Pradesh government is targeting completion of the under-construction Ayodhya International Airport by June this year as the ground and first floors of the much-anticipated Ram Temple in the city are expected to be completed by January next year. It should be noted that the UP government and the Airports Authority of India are developing the existing airstrip in Ayodhya, which is located at a distance of roughly 8 km from the proposed Ram temple site, as an international airport. The proposed airport has been named 'Maryada Purshottam Shri Ram International Airport' and it is being developed along the Gorakhpur-Lucknow National Highway. The current airstrip is built in an area of 177 acres of land and the international airport is being constructed in multiple phases in an overall area of 660 acres. The state government has granted 170 acres to the Airports Authority for the airport. Around 52 percent of the construction was completed by December 2022 and the authorities are hoping they would be able to make the airport operational by June this year. The overall elevation of the Ayodhya Airport has been planned in a way that its structure would pay homage to the grand Ram Temple. The roof of the terminal is proposed to be adorned with Shikharas, of varying heights to convey a sense of grandeur to the structure. Along with the varying shikhara, the terminal will have decorative columns displaying important events from Ramayana pictorially.
