Saras Che!

Indians, especially Amdavadis have been rejoicing as Ahmedabad joins an elite group of 250 cities across the world, including Rome, Paris, Cairo, Vienna, Edinburgh and Brussels as the UNESCO World Heritage City. The 600-year old walled city of Ahmedabad is the first Indian city to make it to the list, and we can’t stop reminiscing about the same.

The World Heritage Committee of UNESCO met in Karlow, Poland on Saturday night and soon after Mr. Ruchira Kamboj – India’s permanent representative to UNESCO tweeted ” Thrilled to announce! Ahmedabad has just been declared India’s first #WorldHeritage city by @UNESCO”.

What this means?

Being tagged as the UNESCO World Heritage city, Ahmedabad will now have access to special funds for conservation and will be more prominent on the international tourist maps.

Time to celebrate and welcome guests from across the globe.
