The government of Tamil Nadu is undertaking a host of schemes for exploiting the tourism potential of Puducherry and make it a preferred destination, said the state Chief Minister N. Rangasamy.


In his address during the launch of the 27th International Yoga Festival (January 4-7), Mr. Rangasamy said that in spite of its small size, Puducherry is a popular tourist spot for its pretty landscape, spiritual vibes and heritage buildings.


The Chief Minister said that the government has already launched schemes like extending the Promenade Beach and is planning anartifacts museum at the Arikamedu site, which houses remains of a once-flourishing trade links with Greece and Rome. The temples at the town have been renovated and rivers rejuvenated as part of Centrally-funded projects for boosting the heritage and spiritual tourism circuits.


Since ancient times, Puducherry was graced by Siddhars (saints) who were also practitioners of yoga, which is an integral part of spirituality, the Chief Minister said.


Mr. Rangasamy launched augmented reality digital postcards brought out by the Tourism Department.


Tourism Minister K. Lakshminarayanan said that while the threat of the Omicron variant had initially dimmed the viability of the festival, the event was held to foreground the immunity-boosting and disease-prevention properties associated with yoga. The yoga festival is being held adhering to all COVID-19 safety norms, including double-vaccinated status as a precondition for taking part.
