Ahmedabad: The Gujarat government has accelerated efforts for preservation of sites that are going to be part of the Buddhist tourism circuit comprising caves in Saurashtra and remains of Buddhist monastery in Central Gujarat region.

While the proposal for Buddhist tourism circuit awaits approval from the Centre, Gujarat government has sped up work on preservation of ancient Buddhist caves and sites which are presently being excavated by the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI).

Chief minister Narendra Modi himself has taken keen interest in the activities and had recently visited the excavation site in Vadnagar of Mehsana district in North Gujarat to take stock of the works taken up there.

"In ancient times thousands of Buddhist monks were coming to Vadnagar in search of spiritual knowledge.
