Karnataka's Hoysala temples

New Delhi: Karnataka’s Hoysala Temples’ sacred ensembles have been inscribed on the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) World Heritage list.

This comes just a day after Santiniketan, the town in West Bengal, was included in the UNESCO World Heritage list on Sunday.

Notably, the Hoysala Temples of Belur, Halebid, and Somnathapura in Karnataka that are now included in the UNESCO World Heritage list make them the 42nd UNESCO World Heritage Site of India.

“More pride for India! The magnificent Sacred Ensembles of the Hoysalas have been inscribed on the @UNESCO World Heritage List,” PM Modi wrote on X.

“The timeless beauty and intricate details of the Hoysala temples are a testament to India’s rich cultural heritage and the exceptional craftsmanship of our ancestors,” he added.

The Union Government had proposed the Hoysala temples of Belur, Halebid and Somnathapura as India’s official nomination to the UNESCO World Heritage List for the year 2022-2023.

On Sunday, Santiniketan was inscribed in the UNESCO World Heritage list during the 45th Session of the World Heritage Committee in Saudi Arabia.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday called the inclusion of West Bengal’s Santiniketan in the list of UNESCO’s World Heritage Sites as a “proud moment for all Indians”.

Taking to X, PM Modi posted, “Delighted that Santiniketan, an embodiment of Gurudev Rabindranath Tagore’s vision and India’s rich cultural heritage, has been inscribed on the @UNESCO World Heritage List. This is a proud moment for all Indians.”
