Jaipur – Now a UNESCO’s World Heritage Site

The Pink city of India is one of the best architectural gems of the country. Jaipur serves as the capital of Rajasthan and speaks of an iconic legacy of the Kings and Queens who ruled over the area decades ago. The city is known for its vibrant culture and traditions that are kept alive even till this date. Jaipur is one of the cities in Rajasthan that glorifies its folklore with pride and celebrates its heritage.

It’s a proud moment for all the Indians as Jaipur has entered UNESCO’s World Heritage Site list. Last week, UNESCO tweeted “Just inscribed as @UNESCO #WorldHeritage Site: Jaipur City in Rajasthan, #India. Bravo,”, informing all the netizens about the big news. The tweet went live on Saturday afternoon post the 43rd Session of UNESCO’ World Heritage Committee, underway at Baku (Azerbaijan) from June 30 to July 10, examined the nomination of the Walled City of Jaipur for inclusion in the World Heritage list.

PM Modi lauded the moment with a tweet announcing that Jaipur has been included as a World Heritage Site, “Jaipur is a city associated with culture and valour. Elegant and energetic, Jaipur’s hospitality draws people from all over. Glad that this city has been inscribed as a World Heritage Site by @UNESCO,”.

Jaipur is an exceptional example of medieval architecture, an amalgamation of forts and palaces and fully functioning modern towns. The foundation of the Jaipur dates back to 1727 AD and the Walled city of Jaipur enounces the rich history.
