Words From The P.R.O

PATHANAMTHITTA TOURISM - the trend setting

Pathanamthitta is known as ‘abode of god’. From temple celebration, wild life experiences to folk arts, it is the one of the ‘must see’ place in the state. District Tourism Promotion Council, Pathanamthitta has initiated unique and aggressive marketing campaign which made the unknown destinations like Gavi, Adavi, Konni to a globally known destinations.
As part of Explore Pathanamthitta campaign activities like photography contest, Aranmulla Kannadi artisans workshop, Padayani workshop, launching of promotional movie, social media campaigns etc have shown results. Those associated with Tourism has opened their eyes positively and started Service Villa, Home Stay etc. in this district. People now understand the principles of responsible tourism and they are embracing the industry to a great extent on our initiatives.

  I have gratification for implementing or being part of lots of new projects since last 26 years. Need of hour is to update the existing infrastructure facilities and also envisage Tourism Friendly Village packages with the participation of stakeholders

By implementing Spiritual Tourism project and Eco-Tourism project of Govt. of India, I hope Pathanamthitta will emerge as a major destination in the state with strong support of State Government.
