Kailash Mansarovar in UNESCO world heritage site


UNESCO has included the Indian part of Kailash Mansarovar in its tentative list of world heritage sites.

The Archeological Survey of India sent the proposal mooted by the Ministry of Environment and Forests to UNESCO.

Covering an area of 6,836sq km within India, the Indian site is part of the larger landscape of 31,000 sq km referred to as the ‘Kailash Sacred Landscape’ constituting the Mount Kailash and Lake Mansarovar in the remote south-western portion of the Tibet Autonomous Region of China and adjacent districts in the far-western region of Nepal.
