Gregorian Calendar. Several are home to United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) World Heritage Sites. 


All of the cities on this list fit the bill of cultural significance and outstanding universal value and are popular tourist haunts for the inquisitive at heart,   


Historians date the caves’ artwork from around 600-1000 CE, and the art and architecture contain a mixture of Buddhist, Hindu, and Jain temples and monasteries.  

#Ellora, India

Carved out of mountains in Maharashtra in India are over one hundred stone caves, thirty four of which can viewed by the public. 

#Angkor Wat, Cambodia

Built as a religious “mega-city” in the twelfth century by the Khmer Empire, Angkor Wat in Cambodia covers approximately 500 acres within Angkor Archeological Park. 

#Rome, Italy

The Metropolitan City of Rome is densely populated with nearly four and a half million residents and is the capital city of Italy, making it a perhaps surprising addition to our list. 

#Beijing, China

Beijing is another example of the modern mixed with the ancient. Like Rome, Beijing boasts capital city-status of The People’s Republic of China and hosts a whopping population of twenty one million residents. 

#Machu Picchu, Peru

8,000 feet into the Andes lies an Incan citadel completely hidden from the outside world until the year 1911.
