Begusarai could not move even a step forward towards tourism development

The development of tourism opens the door to prosperity in the district, but not a single site in Begusarai district has been developed as tourism. And there was hope of developing it as a major tourist center. There are also some small picnic spots in the district. Where common people go on New Year or other days. Among these spots are Naulakha temple of the city, Jaimangala Garh of Manjhol, Baba Ujan place of Bakhri. A large number of people from religious point of view also visit Harigiridham and Simaria Ghat.The biggest obstacle in tourism development can be considered as the low will power of the officials and public representatives and the government not giving funds.
