Jammu, Jun 23 (UNI) Jammu and Kashmir Tourism Department will introduce 'Jammu Darshan' bus service soon in the state to promote tourism among the visitors coming here from across the country.
''To bring untouched tourist destinations on the tourism map, an initiative has been taken by the state tourism department under which 'Jammu Darshan' bus service will be launched soon,'' Mr Ajay Khajuria, Director of the Tourism Department, Jammu, told UNI at the sidelines of a press conference this afternoon.
Mr Khajuria said thousands of tourists visited Jammu and Kashmir every year especially during the 'Amarnath Yatra', which was one of the peak seasons but many historical monuments, buildings and sightseeing areas go unnoticed as there was no appropriate mode of transportation to visit these places.
''A project is in the pipeline under which government transport besides some private travel companies will also be invited to introduce 'Jammu Darshan' bus service and make it a success,'' the Director said, asserting, ''not only the tourist spots within the 'City of Temples' but different districts of Jammu region will be promoted to bring them closer to the outer world so that more tourists visit these places. It will not only explore the unseen destinations but also boost the state economy.'' UNI VBH SKB PK HT1442
