Prime Minister Narendra Modi inaugurated the newly-designed Terminal-2 of the Kempegowda International Airport (KIA) in Bengaluru on Friday.
The terminal has been nicknamed as ‘Terminal in a garden’ due to extensive use of bamboo. The eco-friendly terminal has been built at an estimated cost of Rs 5,000 crore.
It will cater to 2.5 crore passengers annually, reported PTI citing KIA officials.
“The T2 is an architectural wonder, which is a first-of-its-kind ‘Terminal in a Garden’. It will have lush greenery within and outside and will be a visual delight like no other in the world. The passengers’ experience is designed to be a walk in the garden while traveling through the new terminal,” PTI quoted a KIA official as saying.
A big draw of Terminal-2 will be its ‘hanging garden’, according to him.
