‘Tourism is more educative than fun’

Seeking to clear the perception of tourism as being just a fun related activity where people visit newer places, is a two-day photo expo that commenced at the University of Madras on Monday.

The expo, based on the theme of ‘Indian tourism monuments and south Indian epigraphy’, was organised as part of a larger two-day event that also included a national seminar on the role of Indian history and archaeology in promoting tourism in India. As many as 300 photographs of Indian historical monuments, sent in by 26 circle offices of the Archaeological Survey of India, were on vivid display on the occasion.

 As many as 250 photographs of monuments from Tamil Nadu formed part of the expo. The collection included temples and other religious structures in the districts of Pudukkottai and Tiruchi to name a few. The photographs were accompanied by an illustrative index, detailing on its history and origin.
