Sanctioned by the Ministry of Tourism GoI under Prime Minister’s Developmental Programme (PMDP) Swadesh Darshan Scheme, the Srinagar department of tourism decided to run Musical Fountain and Laser Show in Dal Lake. Owing to the overwhelming response from the locals and the tourists alike, Secretary Tourism Rigzin Samphel said that the department decided to run the show in three shifts 15 minutes duration each from 7 pm every day.
The facility has been commissioned to make the city life lively and provide entertainment to the locals and also to the tourists. The department of tourism started a free trial of the laser show on April 10 at 7 pm which attracted a large number of spectators. As the news of the opening of the laser show went viral, more locals and tourists visited the venue at the back lawns of SKICC on the second day and the third day compelling the department to announce 3 shows.
Secretary Tourism said the tourism department is creating adequate infrastructure at all tourist places across Jammu and Kashmir so that tourists, as well as locals, have a better experience while visiting the resorts.
