Himachal to promote religious tourism
Tattapani in Himachal Pradesh, which is very famous for its hot water springs, is going to have a face-lift soon. “The State Government is committed to promote religious tourism at Tattapani and to restore its lost glory,” says Chief Minister Jai Ram Thakur. The spring water that is spread over an area of one square kilo metre is said to have curative powers that provide relief from ailments like joint pain, fatigue, stress relief, and poor blood circulation, and reduces fat and skin diseases.
“The restoration of springs and ‘Bathing Ghats’ will soon be taken up with National Thermal Power Corporation (NTPC) and Sutlej Jal Vidyut Nigam limited (SJVNL). They will be asked to prepare a detailed report of the project and undertake the restoration work as early as possible,” says the Chief Minister.
Religious places as Mahu Nag, Kamru Nag, Shikari Devi, and Rewalsar would be developed from religious point of view to promote tourism and would be raised with the Central Government. “There is lot of scope for religious and adventure tourism in the state and every measure will be taken to restore the lost glory of Tattapani,” he adds.
