Hoysala Temples in Karnataka now India’s 42nd UNESCO’s World Heritage site
NEW DELHI — The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) on Monday announced the inclusion of the Hoysala temples, located in India’s southern state of Karnataka, into its world heritage list.
The temples had been on UNESCO’s tentative list since April 2014. They portrayed the masterful skill of Hoysala artists while featuring Dravidian style of south India, Bhumija style in central India, and Nagara traditions of northern and western India, said a report by The Indian Express.
Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi said the inscription brought more pride to the South Asian country. (Xinhua)
