Those dependent with mystical side of life,in daily services of deity,pooja,bhog,spiritual attainment etc. are indirectly helping State in not posing-up as per their living style.State gains and may get gain much better by tourist inflow on those pretexts.Scope of RELIGIOUS TOURISM with greater infrastructure must be searched that way in our God's own countryas proudly we boost .
