Pakistan is promoting religious tourism in the country with commendable efforts being made by the government. Opening new avenues including the Kartarpur Corridor has won the hearts of the Sikh community across the world. It has also promoted a positive image of Pakistan and given the message of religious tolerance in the country.

Pakistan is ready for another project aimed towards the Buddhist Pilgrims.

Special Assistant to the Prime Minister on Overseas Pakistanis Syed Zulfiqar Abbas Bukhari in an event called “Welcome Christians Season”  shared the plans for this iniative. He revealed that a Buddhist trail will be developed in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Punjab, and Azad Jammu Kashmir, allowing Buddhist pilgrims from all across the world to visit Pakistan.


Bokhari asserted that Pakistan will work towards the restoration of Buddhist cultural heritage.

Recently, a group of South Korean monks visited the Gilgit Baltistan region and visited their religious landmarks. Their visit highlighted Pakistan’s ancient links to the Gandhara civilization.

Buddhism, which is one of the earliest religions to exist, has deep roots in Pakistan, particularly in KP and Gilgit-Baltistan.
