In 2018, India has gained another UNESCO World Heritage Site to add to its collection, bringing the total to 37 sites across the country.
It was decided that the Victorian Gothic and Art Deco ensembles of Mumbai should be a designated UNESCO World Heritage site this year as they 'exhibit an important exchange of European and Indian human values over a span of time’.
During the 19th and 20th centuries, Mumbai implemented an ambitious urban planning project which was crucial to its transformation from a trading outpost to a modern city in its own right. Victorian Neo-Gothic and Art Deco buildings were commissioned, with designs that blended Indian elements to create a fresh architectural style known as Indo-Deco.
If Mumbai is on your list of must-sees, have a look at out our India tours running in 2019 & 2020 through the link below.
