Outside the airport, a substantial mural featuring a bow and arrow has been prominently installed, serving as a symbolic representation of the enduring efforts of Shri Ram. The landscaping of the airport is inspired by the use of colors representing the five elements (Panch Tatva).

The main building of the airport features 7 pillars, each intricately representing the significant episodes of the Ramayana.


The airport, equipped with all modern amenities, features two distinct types of mural plaques in its decoration, namely Daivik and Khandika plaques. In addition to this, a wall mural dedicated to the Lord Hanuman has also been installed. It depicts the entire journey of Lord Hanuman. Furthermore, the airport boasts a striking 3-story high Ram Darbar and a depiction of the Sita-Ram marriage crafted in Madhubani painting, offering a captivating experience for all visitors.


It is noteworthy that from January 11, 2024, there will be daily operation of three flights between Ahmedabad and Ayodhya. Additionally, on January 6, the first flight between Delhi and Ayodhya will take off. After the commencement of initial operations, the process of operating international flights from this airport will begin, and subsequently, Ayodhya will be directly connected to the global circuit, marking a moment of pride.
