World Heritage, as the term suggests, is anything – natural or manmade – that has special cultural, physical and historical significance; that deserves to be protected. Architecture, as a tangible art, outlives humans and stays on as proof of the time it was built in. it tells stories – of the people that lived, their political, social, economic and cultural values and ideologies. Across the planet, people have made buildings for living, working, praying, for celebrations and burials, for harvesting water and saluting their heroes. This therefore becomes one of the most significant aspects of World Heritage.
