Having visited a few religious sites in India I'm actually quite relieved that they won't be turning Buddhist sites into a gaudy circus.

I predict that if there was state support, bribes would be paid for the privilege of hassling visitors to buy incense, elephant goads and bullwhips, or to pay others to torture snakes and bears as 'entertainment'.

I'm surprised that Rajasthan seems to know of no Buddhist sites. Perhaps they didn't ask their Tourism department.
