The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) has inscribed Karnataka's sacred ensembles of Hoysalas in the prestigious World Heritage site list.

The world body posted on X: "Just inscribed on the @UNESCO#WorldHeritage List: Sacred Ensembles of the Hoysalas, #India . Congratulations!"

PM Narendra Modi summed up the excitement of UNESCO's announcement for the country by posting on X: "More pride for India!"

"The magnificent Sacred Ensembles of the Hoysalas have been inscribed on the @UNESCO World Heritage List. The timeless beauty and intricate details of the Hoysala temples are a testament to India's rich cultural heritage and the exceptional craftsmanship of our ancestors," he said.
