The Ayodhya airport will have a peak hour capacity of over 750 passengers
The Ayodhya airport, all set to be ready before the inauguration of the Ram Temple, is going to be an architectural marvel itself. A first look at the under-construction airport shows that it is reflective of the rich culture and heritage of the city. Being built at a cost of Rs 250 crores, the design of the airport is inspired by the Nagara style of temple architecture. With carved pillars and artworks inspired by Hindu scripture Ramayana, the design of the two-storeyed airport seems befitting to welcome people to Ayodhya.

The main entrance of the airport will have a grand stepped 'shikar', the topmost elevated structure of a temple. The entire airport will be outlined with scriptures, the mega columns supporting the terminal roof will symbolize 'Kandas' (major events) of Ramayana. With such symbolism, the airport will be a perfect blend of Ayodhya's rich culture and modern facilities.
