Many initiatives were taken to boost tourism in Rajasthan.

Jaipur: India’s first and only chain of observatories, Starscapes recently announced its plans to launch an astronomical observatory. The type of this observatory will be permanent state-of-the-art. If this plan is successful, Astro tourism will get a great head start in Jaipur. The scope of tourism will also be boosted after the observatory is launched. People will be able to carry out proper research in this observatory. Also, one major included profit will be that this observatory will have all the major equipment needed for: stargazing, observation, and astrophotography.

A Mobile Stargate Observatory was recently set up by the firm and it gained a lot of popularity in Pink city. The Response was so awesome that it made the startup think about installing a permanent observatory in Pink city. The upcoming observatory in Jaipur will be set and built at an accurate geographical location that will not be far from the tourist attractions and hotspots like Amer Fort, Hawa Mahal, Nahargarh Fort, and Jal Mahal, among other popular places.

Bhimtal, Uttarakhand: Second observatory
