These are the 20th world heritage sites with their year of nomination mentioned in the bracker. I have visited 10 of them and still got to visit balance 10 sites. I hope to cover them in the next 4 to 5 years insallah as they say in middle east.
I would like to know from admanyacs how many heritage sites in India have you all visited. Plus please nominate your best of 5 heritage sites. I am sure of the obvious answer for no 1 place.
The rest they say is history. I am sure for all those travel buffs it will be interesting to check out Incredible India. A contest floated by NDTV is on for deciding 7 wonders of India, may be this may help you all to win the contest. Please check out the website for the contest, it is being shortly uploaded. Ready to explore India. The largest democracy in the world with a rich heritage.

The most visited heritage monument seems to be Victoria Terminus, I believe 5 lakh commuters pass through this heritage day and night.

I have visited Taj Mahal,Ajanta caves,Churches and caves in goa,Qutab Minar and Victoria Terminus.to me Taj Mahal will always remain the first and the best.more so because it speaks volumes about the true love of shah jahan.As a tribute to a beautiful woman and as a monument for enduring love, the Taj reveals its beauty when one visits it without being in a hurry. all others that you have mentioned do not boast of such a love story but only remains as national treasure or monument.i will always love to visit this place again and again.Different people have different views of the Taj but it would be enough to say that the Taj has a life of its own that leaps out of marble, provided you understand that it is a monument of love. As an architectural masterpiece, nothing could be added or substracted from it.
