Having worked and researched extensively on the revival of Ayodhya as a tourist destination, Tornos has now set foot in Ayodhya with an office in the temple city. Specialists in immersive travel experiences for the last 26 years, Tornos has been associated with projection of Ayodhya internationally. ‘Mokshdayni Walk’ and ‘Ram Vivah’ have been the company’s most innovative tourism products based on Ayodhya, which were till now being operated and managed from Lucknow but with the new setup in Ayodhya, would be operated locally, bringing down cost and making them more affordable. Tornos is looking at providing employment opportunities to locals and to come up with many more immersive travel experiences to showcase this deserving destination to the world.

Prateek Hira, President & CEO, Tornos, who has been involved in the conceptualisation of Ayodhya’s much-celebrated Diwali event, Deepotsava, that draws a lot of attention, says, “The best local experiences can only be delivered by locals, so we decided to set up our office in Ayodhya. Ayodhya can be seen as a sought-after tourist destination, and the government is possibly seeing tourism to be its main economic driver.”
