UNESCO World Heritage List 2013 - Newly Inscribed Sites
Heritage is our legacy from the past, what we live with today, and what we pass on to future generations. Considering that our cultural and natural heritage are both irreplaceable sources of life and inspiration, UNESCO seeks to encourage the identification, protection and preservation of heritage sites.

UNESCO annually inscribes sites on its World Heritage List in recognition of their outstanding universal value to humanity and to encourage citizens and states to preserve them for future generations.

The UNESCO meeting in the Cambodian capital Phnom Penh for its 37th annual session added five natural sites and 14 cultural ones on Sunday to its list of global treasures.

Here's a look at the newly inscribed sites, including Mt. Fuji in Japan, the Medici Villas in Tuscany, the Hill Forts of Rajasthan in India, the Al Zubara Archaeological Site of Qatar, among a few more.
