On World Hindi Day, January 10, the Director of the World Heritage Centre told the Permanent Delegation of India to UNESCO, Paris, that UNESCO's World Heritage Centre had consented to post Hindi summaries of India's UNESCO World Heritage Sites on the WHC website.

A World Heritage Site is a landmark or region that has been legally designated as such by an international treaty overseen by the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO). UNESCO designates World Heritage Sites for their cultural, historical, scientific, or other value. The sites are assessed to have 'cultural and natural heritage from throughout the world that is of exceptional importance to humanity.'

A World Heritage Site must be a one-of-a-kind landmark that is regionally and historically recognized and has outstanding cultural or physical importance to be chosen. Ancient ruins of ancient constructions, buildings, towns, deserts, forests, islands, lakes, monuments, mountains, or wilderness regions are examples of World Heritage Sites. A World Heritage Site may represent a noteworthy human achievement and serve as proof of our intellectual past on the globe, or it may be a site of outstanding natural beauty. There are many World Heritage Sites in 167 nations. Italy is the nation with the most places on the list, with 58 designated regions.
