Chairman Pakistan Tourism Development Cooperation Sayed Zulfikar Bukhari says government is working to develop a Buddhist trail by exploring religious sites in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Punjab to attract followers of Buddhism and monks from across the world. 

Addressing Buddha’s birthday ceremony in Taxila, he said the initiative is being taken as part of government's plan to market religious tourism.

He said the trail would start from Swabi and Swat and culminate at Taxila, which has numerous Buddhist sites.

The Chairman said sacred places of other religions, including Sikhism and Hinduism are also scattered all over Pakistan and PTDC is also planning to provide facilities there to attract their followers from across the country as well as abroad.
