In 1972, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO) launched a programme for the identification, protection and preservation of cultural and natural Heritage Sites across the world.
The cultural sites include monuments with historial, aesthetic, archaeological, scientific, ethnological or anthropological value. A site was deemed of national heritage by virtue of its outstanding universal value.
Heritage of India
The roots of Indian civilization stretch back in time to pre-recorded history. The earliest human activity in the Indian sub-continent can be traced back to the Early, Middle and Late Stone Ages through 400,000-200,000 BC. Throughout its history armies, traders, and immigrants from all over the world have invaded India. India's heritage is like a rainbow of multiple facets like performing arts, crafts, religion, customs, traditions, beliefs, philosophy, history, health, medicine, travel, cuisine, monuments, literature, painting and languages. Each one of these heritages of India reflects the influence of prevailing cultures. These were the cultures primarily taken birth from the amalgamation of migrating cultures with the Indian ones.
