The airport in Ayodhya district is all set to be renamed after Lord Rama. The Yogi Government of Uttar Pradesh cleared the proposal to rename Ayodhya airport as Maryada Purushottam Sri Ram Airport.
The proposal for the same will be sent to the Ministry of Civil Aviation after it is passed by the state Assembly, said an official release of the Uttar Pradesh government.
Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Adityanath had announced on the occasion of Deepotsav on Diwali eve in November 2018 that Ayodhya will have both international and domestic terminals and could potentially be one of the largest airports of UP.
This comes at a time when Ram temple is under construction at the holy birthplace site in Ayodhya.
