Ayodhya Airport Design To Reflect Spirit Of Ram Mandir
NEW DELHI, (IANS) – The design of the upcoming airport at Ayodhya will reflect the idea and spirit of the Ram Mandir. Officials said work is expected to be completed by June 2023.
Ayodhya, being the first of the seven most important pilgrimage sites for Hindus, attracts visitors from all over the world and has been witnessing rapid growth in travelers.
The airport development project worth Rs 242 crore includes the construction of a terminal building.
A senior official said that the design of the airport will reflect the idea and spirit of Ram Mandir and the roof of the terminal is proposed to be adorned with Shikharas, in varying heights to convey a sense of grandeur to the structure. Along with the varying shikharas, the terminal will have decorative columns displaying important events from the story of Ramayana pictorially. The glass facade of the terminal will be designed to recreate a sense of being in the very palace of Ayodhya. The building will shine aesthetically and functionally, displaying a perfect mix of local architecture with a modern architectural note.
The building also incorporates environmentally responsive systems that reduce the consumption of energy and improve overall efficiency using skylights, solar power systems, and efficient rainwater harvesting amongst others.
