Jammu: The pilgrims that come to Jammu and Kashmir for the annual Amarnath Yatra tend to stay in Jammu for a period of 2-3 days due to the time-consuming procedure of acquiring tokens for the yatra.
Meanwhile, the State Government has attempted to make their brief stay in Jammu worthwhile. For this purpose, they have hired SRTC buses and a complete tour of Jammu province, its historical places is outlined.
Priya Sethi, Hon’ble Minister of State for Tourism, said that the travelers coming to the state are of a particular impression regarding the violence and disturbance that is shown in the news channels. It is an initiative taken up by the State Govt in order to elevate the spirits of the yatrus that come here every year.
The Jammu Darshan scheme would include border tourism, visiting the Balidan Stambh, Bagh-e-Bahu, the Fish Aquarium, Jia Pota Ghat, the ancient Raghunath Temple and many more. All these venues have a proper historical layout associated with them. Attempts will be made that the pilgrims can unwind themselves and feel at ease before beginning their expedition. The entire sight-seeing package would last for about three hours. It includes two different routes — one of them covers the internal spots of the city and the other one includes far-off locations.
This drive would actually help re-build the lousy image of Jammu city and the state at large.
