Abstract

Domestic tourism is a powerful economic agent that contributes to the growth of local economy and generates employment for local community in a large scale. Religious tourism is a greatest contributor of domestic tourism growth in India. Religious tourism in India is planned in a haphazard manner and is not receiving appropriate attention by the tourism planners. In this study, an optimisation technique has been used in religious tourism circuit development. The outcome of the research leads for better usage of optimisation techniques to solve a complex problems in designing viable tourism circuits that support domestic religious tourism. An optimisation technique used in operation research known as Traveling salesman program applied to design tourism circuits. Based on the result of the study, strategies were suggested to overcome the problem in domestic tourism planning in the region.
