Embarking on a unique initiative of secular tourism, the Uttar Pradesh government has decided to develop a sufi tourist circuit, connecting all major sites associated with sufism in the state.
The `mazars` of sufi saints like Deva Shariff in Barabanki district are frequented by people from all religious affiliations,and developing prominent sites of Sufism will attract tourists from all communities, up minister of tourism Kokab Hamid said here today.
The sufi circuit plan, to be launched soon, will not only help increase tourist inflow to the state, but also ensure the maintainance of the sufi sites, which were growing old, he added.
