New themes continuously keep getting added to the portfolio of travel companies. There are many uncommon trails that include Bollywood Tourism and the now fashionable slum tours. A recent addition now comes from SriLanka, in the form of Ramayana Tourism.
It is a new concept created by Sri Lanka Tourism Development Authority. It intends to attract tourists to 50 locations that have been identified to be associated with the Ramayana. Some places are even said to have archeological evidences, though most others are simply based on faith. It is an 8-day long guided tour, and already has many people going on the tour from India.
I could not help but wonder how vast such a tour could be, if conducted in India. Nearly every small town temple has a story to tell about its association with Ramayana or Mahabharata, boasting of some event or the other taking place at the location.
