Dark tourism also Thana tourism, black tourism , morbid tourism or grief tourism has been defined as tourism involving travel to places historically associated with death and tragedy.

Rather, we hold the thesis that far from being a local trend, dark tourism evinces a morbid drive which not only emerges recently but involves other facets and spheres of society.
