Called the Tanot Mata Tourist Complex, it will have Tanot Mata temple, Kishangarh Fort, Longewala war memorial, and scenic villages amid the vast desert terrain as its major attractions. The temple, which is visited by over 3,000 devotees every day, is now being developed into a temple complex with facilities like an amphitheatre, children’s Activity Area, and cafeteria, along with other public conveniences. This will make up for the erstwhile limited facilities that were available to the tourists in the area.

The Bawliyanwala border, which tourists could only visit after seeking permission from District Administration, will now be more easily accessible as tourists will be able to witness the retreat ceremony at the border. Other tourist activities will include a BSF documentary, weapon display, and photo gallery at Ops Base in Tanot.
