These beautiful Places in India on the UNESCO World Heritage List| Jing Kieng Jri

With each site in Meghalaya, Andhra Pradesh and Maharashtra being added to the UNESCO World Heritage List, the number of sites from India on the World Heritage Tentative List has risen to 49. The jing kieng jri or Living Route Bridge, the Veerabhadra Temple at Le Pakshi and the Lonely Sculpture of Nandi, and rock carvings found in the Konkan Mountains will be added to the UNESCO's provisional list in 2022.

The 'living bridges' known as the jing kieng jri in Meghalaya show how human beings lived and lived in harmony with nature. The bridge is intertwined with the roots of four trees on either side of the river in the forests of the Khasi Hills. The roots of the seemayal, also known as the rubber fig (Ficus elastica), form a bridge across the river.

Villagers often intervene to grow roots intertwined. The tribes of the Khasi Jayanthi Hills have built bridges with such roots in many places. In rare cases, a two-story bridge can be seen. It is now estimated that there are about 100 bridges in 70 villages. The Living Route Bridge has been a major tourist attraction in Meghalaya for the past few years.

Lepakshi village and Veerabhadra temple are located in Anantapur district of Andhra Pradesh. Built in the 12th century, the temple is famous for its 70-pillar dance hall, murals, single stone Nandi idol and Nagalingam. In the middle of the dance hall, the 12 granite pillars that support the roof without touching the floor are still amazing. Near the temple, the 4.5 meter high and 8.3 m long single stone Nandi sculpture is the largest in India.
