Bodh Gaya (Bihar): The Union Ministry of Tourism plans to develop Bodh Gaya, a major Buddhist pilgrimage site, as a round-the-year tourist destination and is making efforts to set up required infrastructure and facilities, officials said on Thursday.



The officials said the place in Bihar’s Gaya district primarily attracts the elderly for religious and spiritual tourism, but efforts are being made to draw the youth as well.



A conference on tourism was held in Bodh Gaya on Tuesday and it was attended by Director General of Tourism in the Ministry of Tourism G Kamala Vardhana Rao along with senior central and state officials.
