World Heritage Day is observed every year on April 18, to preserve the human heritage and recognize the efforts of the organizations working for it. We all know that ancient buildings and monuments are an asset to us and to the world. Therefore, World Heritage Day is a collective effort of the communities in the world to do what is necessary.
A World Heritage Site is a place that is listed by the United Nations Educational Scientific and Cultural Organization as of cultural importance. World Heritage Day gives us an opportunity to conserve and preserve our heritage culture, which is of ancient significance. They have an outstanding universal value.
