MP to have Ramayan Circuit soon in a bid to boost tourism

If everything goes as planned, Madhya Pradesh will soon have a Ramayan Circuit. Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan recently announced this, and stated that the government will develop Ramayan Circuit and Ram Van Gaman Path in the state in a bid to boost tourism in the region.

He added, “We will develop Ram Gaman Path, Ramayan Circuit, Amarkantak Circuit, Tirthankar Circuit, Maa Narmada Parikrama, etc., so that tourism activities can be developed in the state.” He emphasized that such a step will help generate employment among the locals here.

Reportedly, the Ram Van Gaman Path project will be retracing the route that is believed to have been taken by Hindu deity Rama on his way to exile. Latest reports suggest that the proposed route will be constructed from Chitrakoot to Amarkantak.

Earlier, a blueprint was prepared for the Ram Van Gaman Path, and it was proposed that small towns falling on the said route would be developed, whereas a special path would also be constructed. It is expected that the said project would help develop the entire region as a tourist destination.

It is believed that out of the 14 years of exile period, Lord Rama, Laxman, and Sita spent around 11 years in Chitrakoot, which is a town on the border of Madhya Pradesh and Uttar Pradesh. If this project gets ready, it will likely be the first spiritual city of Madhya Pradesh.

As per the records and epic Ramayana, the areas from where the trio traversed will be developed as tourist and religious centres. The proposed route passes through nine places, including Chitrakoot, Badhwar (Katni), Panna, Ramghat (Jabalpur), Shahdol, Dindori, Ram Mandir Talab, Amarkantak in Anuppur, and Ramnagar Mandla.
