The profile of Humayun’s Tomb has been enhanced. Nearly a dozen other garden tombs in the vicinity of the grand 16th-century Mughal edifice have also been designated as monuments of outstanding universal value by UNESCO and recognised as world heritage.

While four of these structures got the prestigious tag last year, seven others were included as world heritage property through a notification last month. Officials say this is the first-ever expansion of a world heritage site.
