UNESCO World Heritage Sites: Bequests from History
Journey through the historic sites designated as ‘World Heritage Sites’ by the UNESCO. These inheritances of time are marvels of human genius. India is blessed with a plethora of these heritage sites spread across the land, thanks to its long impressive history and immense diversity. This path takes you back in time and regales you with fascinating tales behind these sites that history has bequeathed to us.
You will embark on this odyssey into history in the city of cities and the nation’s capital, Delhi and its groups of heritage sites. You will then traverse the northern plains and the deserts of Rajasthan to the home of the Taj Mahal, Agra; the city of victory, Fatehpur Sikri; the capital of Rajputana, Jaipur; an exotic expanse which plays host to several migratory birds, Bharatpur; the even more exotic sculptural extravaganza in Khajuraho Temples. This pathway gives you but a glimpse of India’s historic legacy to the world, but a profound one which will have you come back to explore the rest.
