New Delhi, January 29, 2024 — The “Maratha Military Landscapes of India” is India’s proposal for UNESCO World Heritage List recognition for 2024-25. The nomination consists of twelve parts, including Salher Fort, Shivneri Fort, Lohgad, Khanderi Fort, Raigad, Rajgad, Pratapgad, Suvarnadurg, Panhala Fort, Vijay Durg, Sindhudurg in Maharashtra, and Gingee Fort in Tamil Nadu. These parts, located in diverse geographic and physiographic areas, showcase the strategic military powers of Maratha rule.

There are 42 World Heritage sites in India, of which 34 are cultural sites, 7 are natural sites, and one is a mixed site. Maharashtra has six World Heritage Sites, including five cultural sites and one natural site: Ajanta Caves (1983), Ellora Caves (1983), Elephanta Caves (1987), Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus (formerly Victoria Terminus) (2004), Victorian Gothic and Art Deco Ensembles of Mumbai (2018), and Western Ghats of Maharashtra, Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, and Kerala (2012), which is a serial property in the natural category.

The Maratha Military Landscapes of India, included in the Tentative List of World Heritage sites in 2021, is the sixth cultural property proposed for inclusion in the World Heritage List from Maharashtra.
