A proud moment for all Indians as Jaipur, the Pink City becomes the 38th World Heritage Site in India. The 43rd session of the World Heritage Committee held at Baku, Azerbaijan heralded the world a new UNESCO World Heritage Site – JAIPUR. The fort corridor of India earned this prestigious achievement with the help of its legendary monuments such as Hawa Mahal – Palace of Winds, Govind Dev Temple, City Palace, and Jantar Mantar.


The result of a foresighted city planning of an 18th-century city is filled with extensive craftsmanship, ubiquitous artistic and architectural qualities. We should extend our thanks to countries such as Bahrain, Brazil, Cuba, Kyrgyzstan, Zimbabwe, Burkina Faso, Indonesia, Kuwait, Azerbaijan, Guatemala, China, Tunisia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, St.Kitts and Nevis, and Angola. Norway and Australia first proposed referral but after a healthy discussion, Jaipur City was unanimously selected.

Out of 38 UNESCO sites, 30 belong to the Cultural Heritage list, 7 belong to the Natural Heritage list, and there is 1 mixed site. Prahlad Singh Patel (IC), the Union Minister for Culture mentioned his joy about the inclusion of Pink City Jaipur to one of the esteemed list. He had congratulated the people of Jaipur on behalf of the prestigious tag. He had extended his eulogy to the Global Community for honoring the cultural and historic importance of Jaipur.

The mini excerpt of the proposed statement of the Outstanding Universal Value (OUV) in front of the World Heritage List Committee – Jaipur city is an epitome of urban city planning which is far different from other medieval places of the same region. The result of deliberate planning of a new city on the plain landscapes unlike hilly terrains and military cities. Uninterrupted and undulant terrains south of the Amber Hills are not only the product of futuristic planning but also an ingot of indigenous monuments.


Jaipur in Rajasthan is a wonderful destination that everyone must visit to witness the grandeur of its brilliant lanes that can turn back time. 

The daring Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi expressed his happiness in his official twitter handle. He had replied to UNESCO’s official Twitter handle.


Jaipur is one among the few cities that stands as an example of the concept of unity in diversity. ‘The Hindu population along with Mughals and Westerners have worked out a concrete plan to develop one of the unique cities of all time’.’ This is what UNESCO said about Jaipur in the prestigious meet. The idea to honor the marvels of the 292-year-old-Jaipur designed by Vidyadhar Bhattacharya, the Bengali Architect was initially started in 2015 during its nomination.
