The country that hosts the Taj Mahal, one of the New 7 Wonders of the World, celebrated its traditional National Tourism Day honouring local tourism with the “Rural and Community Centric Tourism” theme.
Last January 25 India celebrated the National Tourism Day all across the country, with the government’s main programme carried out at Telangana’s Pochampally, one of the best tourism villages. The government also celebrated the ‘Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav‘, an initiative to commemorate 75 years of progressive India and the history of its people, culture and achievements.
“Let’s celebrate the Incredible India! Tourism is important to the nation’s economy. Let us rise up & commit ourselves to promoting its sustainable development. This tourism day let’s also resolve to focus on ‘Rural Tourism’”, the country’s Ministry of Tourism stated on its official Twitter account.
