Religious Tourism (6)

In India, temples are a common sight, as our country has a very high percentage of Hindus. However outside India they are not so common. They do exist in almost every country but still the kind of footfall one gets to see in the temples in India, especially during festivals, it's nowhere else to be seen in the world.

While the world economic crisis forces many consumers to change spending habits, at least one of Italy's economic sectors has so far been barely touched: religious tourism.

There is a magical quality about the Old City of Jerusalem that does not exist anywhere else in the world.

The government has cleared projects worth over Rs 1,500 crore under three schemes - Ramayana circuit, Krishna circuit and Buddhist circuit - as part of its focus on religious tourism.

The state government is considering the formation of a religious tourism circuit from Kalaburgi-Bidar, Basava Kalyan to Kudal Sangama and Vijayapura to highlight the significance of Buddha-Basava and Jain and Sufi saints, Tourism and IT/BT Minister Priyank Kharge has said.

The spiritual air in the country humbly carries the fragrance of Karma, Dharma and most importantly Forgiveness. A secular country under whose shelter dwells multiple religions in utmost peace and harmony, India can rightly be called the ‘Land of Faith’.
