Congratulations India!

India adds 3 more sites to UNESCO’s Tentative List:

01 Vadnagar- A multi-layered Historic town, Gujarat

02 Sun Temple, Modhera and its adjoining monuments

03 Rock-cut Sculptures and Reliefs of the Unakoti, Unakoti Range, Unakoti District

With this, India now has 52 sites on the UNESCO Tentative List. The List indicates the rich cultural and natural wealth of India and shows huge diversity of our heritage. 

With Hon’ble PM Shri Narendra Modi’s dynamic vision and leadership, India is committed to add more sites on the World Heritage List. 

I congratulate ASI for their role in identifying more monuments and places for the world heritage nomination.

The Sun Temple, Modhera dedicated to Surya dev, is a gem of temple architecture in India & the pride of Gujarat. It is the earliest of such temples which set trends in architectural & decorative details, representing Solanki style at its best.

Located in north-eastern part of Tripura, Unakoti is known as an ancient holy place associated with Shaiva worship. The site is massive gallery set amongst the forest displaying number of towering low relief images in unique style, making it a masterpiece of human creative genius.

Vadnagar is a municipality under Mehsana district of Gujarat. A multi-layered Historic town, the history of Vadnagar stretches back to nearly 8th Century BCE., The town still retains a large number of historic buildings that are primarily religious & residential in nature.
