UNESCO Tags Three Indian Sites in the World Heritage List

New Delhi: Three more Indian sites make it to the UNESCO World Heritage Sites as all three nominations linked to India were approved at the 40th session of the World Heritage Committee meeting in Istanbul. The three sites included in the list are Capitol Complex in Chandigarh and Sikkim’s national park home to the world’s third highest peak Mount Khanchan-zonga.

This comes two days after the ruins of Nalanda University in Bihar made it to the elite list. India is the first country to get three sites inscribed in the Word Heritage List at a single session of the committee meeting.
