It’s a well-known fact that India is culturally and historically diverse, and now, with the selection of three more Indian sites by the World Heritage Committee of Unesco, this fact has only been further emphasised. Newly emblazoned with World Heritage Site status are Nalanda University in Bihar, the Capitol Complex in Chandigarh and Sikkim’s Khangchendzonga National Park (KNP). Unusually, the last has been recognised for both its natural and cultural significance, and therefore proudly bears the label of India’s first mixed heritage site. India now has a total of 35 sites in the list, the sixth-highest number in the world.
