3 Indian sites are now UNESCO World Heritage Sites
Jul 19, 2016

Now, Khangchendzonga National Park (KNP) in Sikkim, Nalanda University in Bihar and The Capitol Complex in Chandigarh are in World Heritage Sites list.

The Capitol Complex in Chandigarh is a part of the group of 17 sites across France, Switzerland, Belgium, Germany, Argentina, Japan and India designed by Franco-Swiss architect Le Corbusier.

Khangchendzonga National Park is also a treat to watch as it includes a unique diversity of plains, valleys, lakes, glaciers and spectacular, snow-capped mountains covered with ancient forests, including the world's third highest peak, Mount Khangchendzonga which has an elevation of 8,586 m.

Now, there are 35 sites in India that are embedded as UNESCO's World Heritage Site.
