Ayodhya to become tourist spot soon
Centre has put Ayodhya on India’s tourism map. With the tourism ministry putting it on the list of cities for promoting tourism, plush hotels, a high-tech railway station and a state-of-the-art campus will come up to woo tourists. We want to build a tourist campus in these cities. A tourist should want to stay there and not make it a day trip. The idea is to promote local trade and industry,” a senior ministry official said. The other cities on the list are Gaya, Mathura, Varanasi, Sarnath, Gorakhpur, Agra, Amritsar, Kanyakumari and Guwahati. These places will all get a five-star hotel, an airport if needed, a railway station with wi-fi and other facilities and a smooth network of roads and communication lines that will lure a tourist to spend a night or two there. The ministry formed a panel of senior officials to draw up blueprints for each city along with cost estimates.
