The Tarn Taran district tourism gets a major push

Published on : Thursday, November 16, 2017

indexOf late, the Tarn Taran district administration comprises a District Tourism Promotion and Heritage Conservation Committee to discover the possibilities of tourism in the border district and recommends tactics to grow tourist inflow.


The move to create a panel to explore the potentiality of tourism in the district is the branchild of Deputy Commissioner Pardeep Kumar Sabarwal. Apart from official members such as the SSP, the ADCs and officials of the Tourism Department, Dr Balvinder Singh, an ex- professor of heritage conservation, has been nominated as a skilled member.


Creating the pace for the move, Dr Balvinder Singh discussed it to the members of the committee regarding the tourism potential in the district, particularly religious tourism.


Dr Balvinder Singh explained that the district had numerous ‘serais’ constructed during the reign of Sher Shah Suri and at the time of Mughal era. He stated that the original Sher Shah Suri Marg from Lahore to Delhi passed through Tarn Taran and many Koss Minars from the bygone times were still available. He explained that the Harike Wetland which had previously been announced a Ramsar site was also located in the district and could be harnessed to lure tourists.
