Swami Vivekananda Airport, Raipur

I was impressed by the various beautiful tribal art displayed at the Swami Vivekananda airport (formerly known as Mana airport) And the fact that it was easy to navigate around this terminal.
Spacious and beautiful interiors

Beautiful metal sculptures

Colorful artwork

Metal army?

Iron man?

This is the only airport located in the state of Chhattisgarh and was inaugurated on November 7, 2012.
Entrance facade
Lush greenery

It was awarded the National Tourism Award in 2013 for the best airport in the non metro category.  Surrounded by lush greenery, the terminal covers an area of 18,500 m2 (4.6 acres)

Wide tree lined roads

Peak summer time - mercury rising !
