Arunachal Pradesh to be major Religious Tourism destination in India: Chief Minister
Nabam Tuki, Chief Minister of Arunachal Pradesh, said that the state is poised to be a major Religious Tourism destination of India. “While the world famous Tawang Monastery attracts tourists in the state’s western part, Buddhist town Mechuka in the north and the Golden Pagoda including famous pilgrimage Parsuram Kund in the east have been the cynosure of all eyes,” Tuki said before paying his obeisance to the 2,568-year-old relics of Buddha, which arrived at the Pagoda recently.
Tuki said with several infrastructure projects in this part of the state coming up, including the Trans-Arunachal Highway and railway connectivity to Tezu, the headquarters of Lohit district, besides close proximity to the airport in Assam’s Dibrugarh district, Religious Tourism would thrive.
While appealing to the people not to leave any stone unturned in preserving the uniqueness of the Golden Pagoda, Tuki said with the arrival of the relics, the place had turned into a holy land of Lord Buddha.
