From India to Nepal: Ramayana Yatra

The “Bharat Gaurav”, India’s first tourist train, will travel to Nepal under the Ramayana Yatra theme, as announced by the Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC). The train will depart New Delhi on 21 June and travel to Nepal. In Nepal, there are many destinations associated with Lord Rama, such as Dhanusha Pahar, Baawan Bigha Kshetra and Ma Janki Janmathali Mandir and Shri Ram Vivah Sthal, and the tourist train will cover them all.
