Sharavan Tirthdarshan Yojana is a scheme launched by the State Government of Gujarat. This scheme is strictly for senior citizens. Under this scheme, the state government provides a 50% subsidy on the traveling expenses to the pilgrimage sites within the state. These sites are: Somnath, Ambaji, Dwarka, Palitana, Girnar, Dakor, Shamlaji, Pavagadh, Bahucharaji, Rampagdandi, and other temples. Pilgrimages are an important part of every religion and culture. The journey to any pilgrimage site is considered sacred to the believer. Most believers have the desire to go on pilgrimage at least once in their lifetime. And most of them find the time to go on pilgrimage when they’re free from their responsibilities, i.e., usually in their old age.
