The state government of Meghalaya in North-East India has set up a museum that presents the traditions, art, and culture of Meghalaya. The museum is dedicated to the Garo community. This is another initiative by the state government to promote and boost tourism activities in Meghalaya.
The Garo Heritage Village is located in the district of West Garo Hills. The project is still in progress and much more is to be done to promote this village. The tourism infrastructure will be developed to make tourist destinations more accessible.
Many states of India are developing several projects to make India an ideal tourist destination. Many tourist attractions have recently received international recognition and Geographical Indicator tags. This will most likely help the tourism economy get the much-needed help after the pandemic slowdown.
The Chief Minister of Meghalaya also announced the 3-day long Wangala Festival. This will highlight the local tribal culture and traditions of Meghalaya. Significant funding has been allocated for these projects by the government.
Following is the news report from ‘Hindustan Times’ talking about the Garo Heritage Village and the efforts being taken to promote it.
