The Great Indian Rover

The Great Indian Rover is a very classic train. This train is a legend which was started to promote the tourism in India. This was the train which provided a journey to sacred Buddhists places. It was announced on Feb 10, 1983, by the Indian Railways. The schedule of this train was different for different days. It had schedule of 3 to 7 days in total. Since it was specially meant for tourist who were interested in visiting Buddhist temples therefore it followed a long route beginning with Calcutta, including stops at Gorakhpur (for Lumbini), Gaya, Patna, Sarnath, etc., and going to Puri, Varanasi, and ending at New Delhi. This route of this train was planned as 7 days scheduled from one side i.e. Calcutta (Kolkata) to New Delhi.
The Great Indian Rover was stopped unfortunately in the late 1980s. Then it became the forerunner to the present day Buddhist special "Buddha Parikrama" which was launched in 1998.
