The number of Jain pilgrims and local/national tourists is quite large here along with nearby Rajgir city. But Bihar govt does not have any effective advertisement policy for attracting pilgrims and tourists.

The Jain temples of Pawapuri (Nalanda) and Rajgir (Nalanda) are also important as Parasnath (Jharkhand) and Palitana Temples (Gujarat). They also deserves same attention and fame.
