The inaugural Bharat Gaurav tourist train connecting places associated with the Ramayana Circuit in India and Nepal was flagged off from the Safdarjung railway station in New Delhi on Tuesday. 

The Bharat Gaurav tourist train will arrive in Janakpur on Thursday, informed the general manager of Nepal Railway Company, Niranjan Kumar Jha.

The train that is to be operated along the Ramayana Circuit will connect popular religious destinations of India, including Ayodhya, Nandigram, Sitamadhi, Banaras, Prayagraj, Chitrakut, Panchawati, Nasik, Hampi, Ramesworam and Bhadrachalam of India with Janakpur of Nepal, Jha shared.

Around 500 passengers are onboard the train, which will also be the first to cross the India-Nepal international border. Officials expect this to boost tourism between the two countries.

According to the Indian Embassy, each compartment of the train reflects glimpses of Indian art, culture, traditions and heritages including monuments, dance, food items, attire, festivals, flora and fauna, yoga and folk arts.
