Shrawasti Airport is situated in Shravasti District in Indian state of Uttar Pradesh. It is an important Buddhist pilgrimage site. Buddha is believed to have spent 24 monsoons in this city. Age-old stupas, majestic monasteries and several temples near the village of "Sahet-Mahet" establish Buddha's association with Shravasti. Moreover, Shravasti is the holy land of all the four Kalyanakas – Chayan, Birth, Diksa and Attainment of omniscience of Bhagawan Samabhavanath.
