Pilgrimage tourism new focus area for J-K govt

Buoyed by the ever increasing tourists’ footfall, the state government is now focussing on developing a pilgrimage tourism circuit in all the three regions of Jammu Kashmir.

The government has charted a plan to develop three pilgrim tourism circuits one each at Kashmir, Jammu and Ladakh regions to promote pilgrim tourism.

“Jammu and Kashmir is rich in pilgrim tourism. To develop pilgrim sites with infrastructure facilities, the government has mooted a comprehensive project report of Rs. 150 crore to the Centre for funding,” said state tourism minister Ghulam Ahmad Mir on Monday.
