The Jammu and Kashmir tourism department became the first in the country to have taken part in the Lord Mayor's Show in London, showcasing the famed 'Shikara' as a part of the world's oldest civic procession.

The 'Shikara' was portrayed as a symbol of resilience of the industry which survived despite facing upheaval in the state for last 20 years, a tourism official said.

A delegation for the show, that concluded yesterday, was led by state tourism minister Nawang Rigzin, he said.

"Our participation in the Lord Mayor's Show will be beneficial for the promotion of Jammu and Kashmir tourism. The state's float compromised a Shikara mounted on the top. More that 30 people, wearing traditional dresses from all three regions of the state, accompanied the float," he said.
