The United Nations' cultural agency, UNESCO, says at least 53 culturally important sites have been damaged since the Russian invasion of Ukraine began. The damaged sites include 29 churches, 16 historical buildings, four museums and four monuments. Image
The list is by no means exhaustive, as UNESCO relies on belated satellite images and witness reports to verify the damage. According to the Minister of Culture of Ukraine, the statistics are much more devastating.
At least 135 war crimes against Ukrainian national heritage have been documented since Feb. 24, including 59 crimes against religious sites and memorial grounds.

ایلیفنٹاغار (ممبئی، بھارت)

چھٹی صدی کا یہ مندر ہندو دیوتا شیو (Shiva) کیلیے وقف ھے۔ اس دور میں یہ طرز تعمیر قابل حیرت ھے۔
خیال یہ کیا جاتا ھے کہ ایلیفنٹا غاروں کو پانڈووں نے تعمیر کیا تھا، تاہم، کچھ اس کا سہرا شیو کے چیلے بھکت بناسورا کو بھی دیتے ہیں۔ مقامی روایت یہ بتاتی ھے کہ غاروں کی تعمیر
مردوں کے ہاتھوں سے نہیں ہوئی تھی۔
ایلیفنٹا غار میں شیو لنگا کے کم از کم دس الگ الگ نمائندگان ہیں۔ اس غار کی سرپرستی کرشنا راجا اول (550 - 575ء) ایک مشہور شیو عقیدت مند اور کالچوری سلطنت کے حکمران نے کی۔

Interesting details here from @BarakRavid, the decision to leave UNESCO was short-sighted, Israel has many important UNESCO sites and was seeking to add more and then left the organization rather than seeking reform from within. Israel lost out here, and it is good to return.

Ellora is a sacred site in #Maharastra. The Ellora Caves are listed by #UNESCO as a World Heritage Site and is celebrated for its Hindu, Buddhist, and Jain temples and monuments which were carved from the local cliff rock in the 6th to 8th century CE. The most spectacular example
is the 8th century CE Kailasa temple which, at 32 metres high, is the largest rock-cut monument in the world.
Located in the Sahyadri hills near Aurangabad, #Ellora is the most important second-wave site of ancient rock-cut architecture in India. In the western face of one hill,
composed of volcanic Basalt rock, there are 35 caves and rock-cut temples, largely produced during the reign of the Kalachuri dynasty in the 6th and 7th centuries CE.
