Abstract

Assessment of tourism carrying capacity is essential to regulate and manage the visitors. The uncontrolled tourism activity is a major concern for the authorities to manage religious destinations. In the recent past, world has faced many miss-happening on religious destinations. Therefore, the present study tries to estimate the physical carrying capacity of Braham Sarovar, a very famous religious destination in Kurukshetra, Haryana using both primary and secondary data sources. Paper has adopted different methodologies suggested by International Union of Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources (IUCN), Indian Road Congress (IRC), Ministry of Urban Affairs and Employment, India. Beside that GIS approach is used to establish a framework for assessment of the study area. Present study has identified the maximum number of pilgrims that Braham Sarovar conserves which is about 5,67,534 persons per day on any specific occasion. The destination has adequate space for parking but lack sufficient number of toilet and need to ensure availability of large number of such public conveniences of temporary nature during big events like sun eclipse.
