Rajasthan is now looking to develop new tourism sites to keep the interests of the visitors piqued. In order to redefine the state’s tourism landscape, Rajasthan Tourism Department has initiated identification and development of new tourist destinations in every district of the state.

The initiative will include restoration and conservation efforts for two distinct tourist spots in each district. According to department officials, these projects are already in progress and are supported by the Tourism Development Fund. The primary objective of these projects is to spread the economic benefits of tourism throughout Rajasthan.

According to Gayatri Rathod, Principal Secretary of the Tourism Department, this initiative is in alignment with the 22-23 Budget Announcement. “We are proud to announce that two unique tourist destinations have been earmarked for development in each district. This visionary plan not only aims to enhance existing tourist spots but also envisions the creation of entirely new attractions for visitors,” Rathod said.
