UNESCO Sites in Bangladesh

Bangladesh UNESCO has registered 3 sites on the World Heritage list and 5 on the tentative list.

Some places are so interesting that it’s relevant to keep them for future generations. This is why UNESCO has built a list of crucial classified properties in which superb places stand out for their aesthetic, natural, artistic, or cultural significance.

More than a thousand places are registered as Unesco’s World Heritage worldwide. Due to my interest in visiting World Heritage sites, I compiled the UNESCO list in Bangladesh and the corresponding map.
