Abstract:   (2221 Views)
In terms of purpose, this study is of applied type of research and in terms of nature is of descriptive- field type. A model is designed to understand the effective factors in development of tourism including welfare, cultural and social, natural and environmental facilities and services, and has been tested through structural equation model and AMOS software. For testing the research hypotheses a sample of 150 persons taken from tourists and people has been used and reliability of the questionnaire was been in general 0.865. Analysis of the findings of this research has been done in two parts.in the first part descriptive findings of the research is examined, and in the second part normality of data is examined by Colmogrov 22 English Abstracts Smirnov test and results show that higher meaningfulness for the total data. So, normality condition of data became fixed. Finally, after the analysis of the confirmatory factor of variables in measurement frames, the examination of the hypotheses rejection or confirmation was done by using structural equations approach. The analyses show that among three hypothesis presented, only facilities and services factor affects the development of historical- cultural tourism in this area. Therefore, the model obtained from this research indicates a meaningful correlation between welfare facilities and services and development of tourism in Farahabad, and tourism facilities and infrastructures have a direct relationship with development of tourism in this area.
Keywords: Historical- cultural tourism, Farahabad, Structural Equations Model (SEM).
