Gandaki Chief Minister Krishna Chandra Pokhrel Nepali has said that development of the country is possible only through religious tourism. Stating that Gandaki is rich in terms of religious tourism, he said that the state government has always been in the forefront for the development of religious places here. He said that the presence of holy religious and tourist sites like Muktinath and Trivenidham in Gandaki had helped in the economic development of the region.

He said that the religious areas within the state like Gajendra Moksha Dham, Muktinath and Devghat Dham would be of special importance and would be given special priority in the development of these areas.
