October 12, 2023

TAXILA: A cultural caravan visited the archaeological museum Taxila and ancient Taxila University in connection with World Tourism Day on Wednesday.

The caravan was led by Syed Wasi Ahmed Shah, Special Assistant to the Prime Minister on Tourism, and included foreign diplomats, civil society members, dignitaries, professors, and people from various walks of life-based in Islamabad.

The caravan was organized by the Ministry of Tourism in partnership with the Pakistan Tourism Development Corporation, the Punjab Department of Archeology and Museum, and the Punjab Small Industries Department.

The caravan’s participants first visited the Taxila archaeological museum and then the Julian Buddhist site, also known as the historic Taxila Buddhist University.

In a press conference on the occasion, Special Assistant to the Prime Minister on Tourism Wasi Shah stated that there are enormous prospects for tourism in Pakistan and emphasized the importance of expanding this sector.

“Instead of observing the World Tourism Day inside the walls of some hall, we have planned to celebrate the day in a unique environment by planning to visit the 2,200 years old ancient Taxila University,” he went on to say.

Dr. Sebastiab Paust, chief of Germany’s development cooperation embassy, told reporters that Pakistan has tremendous untapped tourism potential. He went on to say that a good projection of Gandhara civilization among Buddhist countries might change the area into a focal point for Buddhists, monks, researchers, archaeologists, and researchers.

Later, addressing to the participants of the caravan, Wasi Shah said that the government was planning short and long-term plans to promote tourism and the major focus would be on inbound tourists as promotion of inbound tourism would pave the way for attracting foreign tourists.

He was of the view that Pakistan has an amazing landscape, natural beauty, history, rich culture and heritage.

He added that Pakistan is home to diverse topography and cultures, from scenic to religious attractions, the country holds strong tourism potential. He said that in 2019, there were 5 million tourists who visited KPK alone. The Minister has said that tourism creates an expansion in the human mind, from this expansion, the spirit of coexistence is born as tourism gives birth to peace.

In his address, Balochistan’s caretaker minister for education and tourism, Dr Qadir Bux Baloch, stated that it was high time to explore the province’s tourist potential because it had unique domestic as well as tourism opportunities that could not only help to dispel the province’s but also the country’s negative image. He claimed that the province includes unique islands, beaches, coastline, and other locations that are unknown to the general population.
