UNESCO World Heritage Sites Of India
India is the cradle of human race,” said Mark Twain; “We owe a lot to Indians, who taught us to count”, quoted Albert Einstein. India has always been in the world map from time unknown. The travelers like, Ibn Batuta or Xuan Zang, have written a lot about India and the huge cities of India in their travelogues. Being such an old civilization on the planet, no wonder that India has as many as 38 UNESCO world heritage sites and nearly 40 more in the pipeline!!
To be included on the World Heritage List, sites must be of outstanding universal value and meet at least one out of ten selection criteria. And India, no doubt, has many such sites listed in the UNESCO world heritage sites’ list.
When people think of India, they think of Taj Mahal, but apart from the beauty of the Taj Mahal, there is so much more in India to be visited, admired and nurtured. From the ancient caves of Bhimbetka to the recent architectural marvel of the city of Chandigarh; from massive forts of Rajasthan to the largest delta of Sundarbans and from the intricately carved temples in south India to the natural Valley of flowers in northern India.
Here we take a look at these precious sites, not to be missed. Let us look at their importance and their beauty, which made them stand in the list of UNESCO world heritage sites. The connectivity to these sites and all that one would like to know, through www.t2india.com
