On the occasion of World Tourism Day, Maharashtra Tourism in a joint initiative with the Ahmednagar Cycling Club and the Sarwa app which is Ahmednagar's very own shopping app and is the first step towards an atmanirbhar city, has organized a 25KM bicycle ride, a 10KM Run, a heritage walk, a drawing and colouring competition to celebrate our city's grand heritage on the 25th of September 2022. This initiative is launched with an aim of piquing the local community's interest in and participation in urban conservation efforts, to highlight the significant part it plays in the development of the history and character of Ahmednagar city. World Tourism Day will be commemorated on September 27th, 2022 and will reflect on the subject "Rethinking Tourism." It intends to spark discussion about rethinking tourism for development, especially through education, as well as tourism's impact on the environment and potential for more sustainable growth. We too intend to draw a community of like minded people together and join hands to celebrate the city we call home.
The urban lifestyle is unforgiving and it makes us almost blind to perceive anything extraordinary about the city we live in. Every day, we rush past the gorgeous history buildings on our way to work or school, barely noticing how they have aged gracefully. A city is constantly whispering to us about its heritage. This heritage walk organized on the occasion of World tourism Day is a special way to discover the city's untapped and underappreciated riches. The Heritage walk will be lead by our city's own historian Bhushan Deshmukh and will commence on the 25th of September 2022 at 9am. Join us as we uncover the true spirit of our city, immersing ourselves in architectural styles as well as the city's social and cultural past.

Date and time: 25th of September 2022 at 9am.
