The young union territory of Ladakh is all set to make its debut in the extravaganza on Rajpath with a beautiful tableau depicting the iconic Thikse Monastery and its cultural heritage. According to OrissaPost, the union territory of Ladakh was created in 2019 after the central government bifurcated the state of Jammu and Kashmir came into a union territory. On Friday, during a media preview of the Republic Day tableaux held here, members of the Ladak contingent were feeling “on top of the world”.
The tableau prominently depicts the historic Thikse Monastery located on top of a hill in Thikse in Leh district and is one of the most-visited tourist sites in the region. Artistes dressed in colourful traditional Ladakhi ‘gunchas’ interacted with reporters on Friday during the media preview of the Republic Day tableaux held at Delhi Cantonment.
A total of 17 states and union territory will be represented on the Rajpath in this year’s parade through their vibrant tableaux, besides that of various ministries and the three armed forces.
