The country's heritage sites, development of our cultural heritage is a great example of this."

"Today this development of tourist centres is not just a part of the government scheme, but a campaign of public participation. We hear about many countries of the world and how big is the contribution of tourism in their economy. We have infinite possibilities like this in every state, in every field," he said.

"Every state has unique tourist spots reflecting our culture with a plethora of experiences waiting to be unlocked by the tourists; right from Kedarnath in Uttarakhand to Sabrimala Temple in Kerala that represents Ek Bharat Shrestha Bharat," added PM Modi.

The Prime Minister also gave four steps to boost the tourism sector.

"In today's time, four things are necessary to increase tourism. These 4S are essential to boost our tourism sector. Swachhta, Suvidha: i.e increased facilities, be it infrastructure or transport, Samay: People want to cover many places in lesser time and Soch: We need new innovative thinking that is also rooted in our cultural heritage," said PM Modi.

"Vocal for Local is not limited to buying local products. I urge you, before you think of travelling abroad, travel and discover your roots by visiting hidden gems of India," said PM Modi.

The Somnath Temple is visited by lakhs of devotees from India and abroad every year. The need for the new Circuit House was felt as the existing government facility was located far off from the temple.
