Mathura and Vrindavan to be soon connected via cruise service, Chile’s Easter Island reopens to tourists after more than two years and more in top stories of the day.
Mathura and Vrindavan to be soon connected via cruise service
It was announced earlier today that waterways on the Yamuna will be developed in order to connect Mathura and Vrindavan with a cruise service. This move comes in the wake of promoting religious tourism in the region. The experience of travelling via cruise is also expected to lure tourists visiting Agra to also visit Mathura.
The twin cities of Mathura and Vrindavan are famed for being the birthplace of Lord Krishna, and attract a large number of pilgrims and tourists every year. People who are keen to go on a short spiritual sojourn, these twin cities are their go-to place. And since the places of interest are not that far from each other, one gets to explore most of the attractions in just a day.
With this new development, it is expected that these destinations will be able to attract more tourists in the near future.
