In a landmark achievement, Mumbai gets its 3rd and India its 37th UNESCO World Heritage Site. It, indeed, is a proud moment for our country!
The ‘Victorian Gothic and Art Deco Ensembles of Mumbai’ is a unique win in its own right. It includes an area of 66 hectares encompassing the Venetian Gothic University Building, High Court, Churchgate, and Marine Drive, with the Oval Maidan at its heart.
The other two World Heritage Sites in Mumbai are the Elephanta Caves and the Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus.
Now, India stands second largest in number after China in terms of number of World Heritage properties in the ASPAC (Asia and Pacific) region. Overall, it ranks sixth in the world.
