Maryada Purushottam Shree Ram Airport And Shree Ram Mandir At Ayodhya

It is great that the Shree Ram Mandir and the "Maryada Purushottam Shri Ram Ayodhya Airport" will be a reality soon. 

Feeling truly blessed that this proud moment will be possible for all of us in January 2024.

Just like for many other Indians, this means a lot to me. 

In 2017, I had the chance to visit the Maya Devi Temple at Lumbini, Nepal. 


It struck me that they were so certain about the exact location of the place of birth of Gautam Buddha. Inside the temple, they had marked the designated area as the "birthplace of Gautam Buddha".

In contrast, some top lawyers and politicians of our nation were/are not even willing to accept the existence of Shree Ram or that He was born in Ayodhya! And this despite the Ramayana epic clearly stating that Shree Ram was born in Ayodhya! 

Scientists have calculated Shree Ram's date of birth.

As per this report published by Zee New India in August 2012-


Zeenews Bureau

New Delhi: New findings have once again proven the existence of Lord Rama, with his exact date of birth getting a scientific credence.

As per the Institute for Scientific Research on Vedas (I-SERVE), planetarium software has ascertained the birth of Lord Rama as 10th January 5114 BC in Ayodhya. As per the Indian calendar the time of the birth is in-between 12 noon and 1pm, Shukla Paksha in Chaitra month.

According to Zee News exclusive, the institute has also claimed success in substantiating many other ancient events in Indian mythology that supposedly took place before 2000 BC by using the planetarium software.

The planetarium software is also used by NASA and Nehru planetarium to find out the position of various planets and stars in the universe.

The scientist of I-SERVE claimed that they zeroed down on Lord Rama`s birth date by studying planetary positions as described by Valmiki in the Ramayana.

The scientists also said that new scientific tools and techniques like planetarium software, computers, space imagery, underwater explorations, and radio carbon dating can clearly validate the existence of characters and events which are described in Ramayana.

It is just not about the date of birth of Lord Rama, scientists have also proofs which can substantiate not only the existence of Lord Rama as described in Ramayana but also of the incident of the clash of Lord Rama and ‘khardushan’ during the 13th year of Rama’s exile.

Much water has flown down the Sarayu river. Ayodhya has seen a metamorphosis.

Truly excited to read about the progress of the Shree Ram Mandir and airport too.

The Ayodhya airport has a 2,200m-long and 45m-wide runway, with a terminal spread over 8,000 sqm area. It can handle 500 passengers at a time. It will be inaugurated this year-end.

"Maryada Purushottam Shri Ram Ayodhya Airport" is a rich cultural name for the Ayodhya Airport.

Earlier, Donyi Polo, the airport of Arunachal Pradesh, became the first in India to be named after the sun and the moon. As per this report in the Times of India-


At the spiritual level, it will be under the watchful eyes of Donyi (sun) and Polo (moon) — the main deities in the ancient animistic tradition of the easternmost Himalayan state's vast majority. This is the country's first airport to be named after the sun and moon

Name is the identity.

Name is our pride.

"Maryada Purushottam Shri Ram Ayodhya Airport" will be the first airport in India and the world to be named after an avatar of Vishnu- Shree Ram.

Coming to the reference of our Gods-

Have been trying to share that all must use "Shree" instead of "Lord" to refer to Hindu Gods

  • Shree Ram, 
  • Shree Krishna, 
  • Shree Ganesha etc.

Now Sri and Shri are also being used for the Gods.

But, the terms- "Sri" & "Shri" are used for humans too.

"Shree" is comparatively not as commonly used as a title for addressing people.

Even the "Padma Shri" award has "Shri" (and not "Shree" in its name).

True that many people do have "Shree" in their names like Shreekant, Shreemayee, Shreedhar, Shreedevi, Rajashree, Bhagyashree etc.

Just a suggestion-

Could we reserve and use "Shree" for the Gods?     

This usage can be done by all the English media too to ensure uniformity.  

I) It will be great to ensure the usage of "Shree" (instead of Shri) in the names of the Ayodhya Temple as well as the Ayodhya Airport.

This usage should be uniform all across to refer our Gods and Temples, and not just for Ayodhya.

Mahaprabhu Shree Jagannatha ji's Temple at Odisha is “Shree Jagannatha Temple” Puri @JagannathaDhaam

Earlier "Shri" was used in the name, but the change has been made to "Shree".

II) We must get more people to start using Shree instead of Lord for the deities

Shree Ram

Shree Balabhadra 

Shree Jagannatha 



We look forward to seeing all using "Shree" in news media reports and social media posts also.

That will further inform and inspire many to adopt and use "Shree" for Bhagwan Ram ji and other Gods.

Vande Mataram

Jaya Shree Ram

May Shree Ram bless us all.

There is no such ground rule. This is just a suggestion to ensure uniform usage and reference. 

I believe- ultimately it is the bhakti (devotion) and purity that counts. 

Whether a person uses Lord/God/Sri/Shri/Sree/Shree or a combination, is totally the individual's choice. No one can impose anything on anyone.

Many titles are already in use for a long time and we cannot change what has happened in the past- book publications, news media reports, blog and social media posts, sign-boards or innumerable instances where Lord, Sri etc have been used. 

This is just expressed so that all can be aware and henceforth try to have "Shree" as the title of the names of deities.

Do you agree? What are your views?
