Ahmedabad gets status of India's first World Heritage City by UNESCO


The commercial capital of Gujarat, Ahmedabad, has been formally accorded the status of India’s first World Heritage City by UNESCO.

UNESCO Director General Irina Bokova handed over the certificate declaring Ahmedabad as a ‘World Heritage City’ to Gujarat Chief Minister Vijay Rupani in Gandhinagar on Friday.

Speaking after receiving the certificate, the Gujarat Chief Minister said it was a moment of pride for Gujaratis. He appealed the citizens of Ahmedabad to maintain the pride and glory of the newly crowned ‘World Heritage City’.
In July, the UN agency had inscribed Ahmedabad as India’s first World Heritage City at a meeting held in Poland.
