The Indian High Commission is planning to launch a special train service for pilgrims visiting Dambadiva.

The train service will be launched targeting Sri Lankan pilgrims who will be undertaking pilgrimages to Buddhist places of worship in India. The Indian High Commission said plans are afoot to unveil the new train service in November.
Pilgrims can visit places such as Buddhagaya, Saranath, Kapilawastu, Sanchi and Kushinara following the launch of this service which will begin from Chennai. The train will serve Sri Lankan dishes.

India’s High Commissioner to Sri Lanka Ashok K. Kantha said that the Indian Prime Minister agreed to launch this special train service in response to a request made by President Rajapaksa.
