A world famous site and popular tourists’ destination Dholavira, a Harappan-era metropolis, in Gujarat has been inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List, the organisation stated on Tuesday.
“Dholavira: A Harappan City, in India, just inscribed on the @UNESCO #WorldHeritage List. Congratulations!” UNESCO tweeted.
The 44th session of the World Heritage Committee of the UNESCO is ongoing in this season and has already given India a new world heritage site in the form of the Rudreswara/Ramappa Temple in Telangana, which dates back to the 13th century.
Culture Minister G Kishan Reddy in a tweet said, “It gives immense pride to share with my fellow Indians that #Dholavira is now the 40th treasure in India to be given @UNESCO’s World Heritage Inscription. Another feather in India’s cap as we now enter the Super-40 club for World Heritage Site inscriptions.”
Appreciating this decision, Gujarat chief minister Vijay Rupani said,”This are the results of prime minister Naredra Modi’s attempts to take the state he belongs to the international level and we really appreciate it.”
