To develop Purvanchal as a tourism hub, a member of the tourism committee of Purvanchal Development Council, Prof Manoj Dixit, has proposed an action plan suggesting that Ayodhya and Gorakhpur should be incorporated into the religious tourism circuit along with Varanasi and Kushinagar. Varanasi and Kushinagar, two districts of religious importance for Buddhists, attract about 65% of tourists visiting the state annually.

In a presentation to Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, Prof Dixit, who is also the former vice-chancellor of Dr. Ram Manohar Lohia Awadh University, Faizabad, said: “Purvanchal has cultural connections with Bihar but there is no event which connects the two. Events like Ayodhya’s Deepotsav and Varanasi’s Dev Deepawali are needed to boost tourism. A city like Kushinagar should have a direct rail link.”

Other suggestions made in the presentation included road, rail, water, and air connectivity between Awadh and Mithila.“Sawan Jhoola Mela of Ayodhya can be a big draw for tourists like Deepotsav and Dussehra celebrations. UP can run special tourist train, as are currently operated in Rajasthan,” he said. Prof Dixit also proposed a film city in Mirzapur and Sonbhadra. Other suggestions included the organization of fairs, rebranding of Magh Mela in Prayagraj as Annual Kumbh, along with a shorter fair in Ayodhya.
