The UNESCO World Heritage Sites In India are not some prohibited areas but you have actually been to these places. But you never knew these places were actually UNESCO’s World Heritage Sites In India. But without any further delay, we will share our knowledge with you. But before that just give you a little detail about how these sites are selected as UNESCO’s World Heritage Sites. A World Heritage Site is selected and recognized by the United Nations on the basis of its “cultural, historical, scientific or any other form of significance”. And these sites are preserved and protected by UNESCO.
There are such 35 sites in India (like Taj Mahal, Qutab Minar, Humayun’s Tomb). But these sites we are just about to reveal are the ones that you can’t even think of it being a UNESCO’s World Heritage Site. Here are seven of them:
Great Living Chola Temples, Tamil Nadu
Group of Monuments at Pattadakal
Rani Ki Vav
Bhimbetka Rock Shelters
Churches and Convents of Goa
Khangchendzonga National Park

Some of these monuments may not be even familiar in terms of tourist attraction due to less popularity. But these places are the are from 7th and 8th centuries and their excellent craftsmanship is what makes them so special. These all monuments carry so much historical importance that even UNESCO was highly obliged to save these monuments to keep their heritage intact.
