Patna, Bihar's largest city and capital, is well-known for its distinct culture and history. The city, which is located on the southern bank of the Ganges, attracts visitors from all over the world. Connections to and from Patna will not only boost tourism, but will also enhance trade and commerce, as Patna is also a major agricultural hub. Takhat Sri Harimandir Sahib Ji, Nalanda, Bodh Gaya, and many other places attract tourists from all over the world. For many years, it has been home to a variety of small and large-scale industries. Increased connectivity and access to an important Hindu pilgrimage centre like Deoghar will enhance tourist footprint in destinations like Baba Baidyanath Temple, which is one of the 12 Shiva Jyotirlingas and one of the 51 Shakti Peethas in India, Trikuta Parvata which is accessed by a passenger ropeway, Mayurakshi river, Rama Krishna Mission Vidyapith and Naulakha Mandir.
Strengthening access to Bengaluru, the capital of Karnataka and center of India's high-tech industry would provide tourists with increased access to destinations like Cubbon Park, Nandi Hills, Tipu Sultan’s Summer Palace, Lal Bagh Botanical Gardens, Bengaluru Palace, Ulsoor Lake, and ISKCON Temple. Bhopal is known as the City of Lakes for its numerous natural and artificial lakes, and it is home to major industries that manufacture cotton textiles, jute, and electrical products. Improved access to Bhopal will contribute to the country's socioeconomic and cultural development.
