The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO) has announced its new world heritage sites.
The World Heritage Committee has inscribed the hill forts of Rajasthan as new cultural World Heritage sites. The sites include six majestic forts of Chittorgarh, Kumbhalgarh, Ranthambore, Jaisalmer, Amber Fort (Jaipur) and Gagron Fort (Jhalawar). UNESCO stated that the eclectic architecture of the forts, some up to 20 kilometers in circumference, bears testimony to the power of the Rajput princely states that flourished in the region from the 8th to the 18th centuries.
