Due to such stories, there are many tourists visiting this village. With such vast number of visitors, the place could be developed into a tourist hotspot. Many tourists enquire if the inhabitants still practice magic. It was stated that magic and sorcery are not being practiced as much as they were in the past. This is due to children going to school and shunning these practices.
There are legends in this village like Chura Bez, who is said to be able to disappear into thin air by using mantras. It is stated by the villagers that magic is not being taught much anymore. Even in the past, most mantras were passed by word of mouth rather than being written. The very few magic practitioners state that only a minor amount of people still visit them for their problems.
