National Tourism Day: Theme, Meaning and Scheduled Events | Latest India News

National Tourism Day is celebrated across the country on January 25 every year to appreciate the beauty of India and raise awareness of the importance of tourism and its impact on the economy. The Ministry of Tourism observes National Tourism Day under the aegis of “Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav”, a 75-week grand celebration to mark 75 years of India’s independence. This year’s theme for National Tourism Day is “Rural and Community Tourism”.

Within the framework of the National Tourism Day, seminars, cultural events and other programs will be organized by the Center in collaboration with the Telangana government. While several states have held events to promote tourism in their region, the central government is holding the main event in Pochampally village of Telangana, a weaving hamlet on the outskirts of Hyderabad.

Known for its famous hand-woven Ikat sarees, Pochampally was selected as one of the best tourist villages by the United Nations World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) in November 2021. Programs including cultural events, live performances, and light will also be organized in 75 major tourist centers and all tourist destinations in the country.
