New Delhi: In an attempt to pump up the tourist activities in Bodh Gaya, the government has decided to kick off 'on arrival' e-visa facility for tourists visiting the heritage site, reportedly. The Mahabodhi temple, which is a UNESCO world heritage site witnesses a number of tourists visiting the place where Gautam Buddha attained enlightenment.

According to a TOI report, visitors from 87 countries including Europe, USA, Japan, South Korea and Thailand would benefit from the move.

The report further states that the new norm will be implemented before the start of October this year.

Kalchakra, the most important Buddhist ritual conducted by spiritual leader Dalai Lama will benefit from on arrival e-visa facility.

However, the move will not benefit the ones coming from neighbouring country Pakistan. As they will not be able to apply for 'on arrival' e-visa facility, reportedly.
