A site designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site is one that has been of exceptional value to humanity in terms of its physical or cultural significance. It is determined by the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) to be of exceptional value to humanity in terms of its physical or cultural significance. The goal of UNESCO is to promote the preservation, recognition, and upkeep of natural and cultural heritage all over the world. The Convention regarding the Protection of the World Cultural and Natural Heritage, ratified by UNESCO in 1972, serves as an illustration of this.

India is home to 40 World Heritage Sites. 32 cultural sites, 7 natural sites, and 1 mixed-criteria site are among them. Agra, India is home to the Agra Fort, also referred to as “Laal. In 1983, UNESCO named it a World Heritage Site. The Taj Mahal is located about 2.5 kilometres from the fort.

With a total of 55 sites, China and Italy have the most World Heritage Sites. Maharashtra currently has five UNESCO World Heritage Sites, which is the most of any Indian state or union territory.
