“Along with the vibrant indigenous faiths, Arunachal Pradesh has several important religious places, which have also been mentioned in ancient religious scripts,” the Governor said.
He further said that the Parshuram Kund in Lohit district, which is one of the important places of pilgrimage of the country, needs to be developed.
“The Parashuram Kund in Lohit district is an important pilgrimage place of the country. It needs to be developed for a safe visit, bathing and comfortable stay,” the Governor said.
“Pilgrims from different places of the country visit this all-important pilgrimage spot of the country,” he added.
Brig (retd) Mishra said, “The early finalization of the Parshuram Kund project would assist local youths to have self-employment opportunities. This will enhance the local economy.”
“The Bhupen Hazarika Setu will expedite the project and will also enhance tourism immensely in eastern Arunachal Pradesh,” the Governor said.
