Synopsis: This development occurs as India prepares to take over the G20 presidency for a year on December 1; more than 200 meetings will take place in India at 55 different places during this time.
According to recent press reports, the G20 emblem will be illuminated for a week starting on December 1 on 100 strategically protected landmarks across the nation, including UNESCO world heritage sites.

This development occurs as India prepares to take over the G20 presidency for a year on December 1; more than 200 meetings will take place in India at 55 different places during this time. According to reports, the G20’s inaugural meeting will take place in Udaipur during the first week of December, along with the G20 Sherpa summit.
An expert noted that the nature and layout of the location will determine the size of the logo projected on the monuments in reference to this. The majority of India’s cultural sites fall under the jurisdiction of the Archaeological Survey of India, and the country has 40 overall UNESCO World Heritage Sites (ASI) sites.
Regarding this, the ASI also released a memo in which it was stated that the G20 Presidency would be held in India beginning on December 1 for a year, and that dignitaries and high-level delegates would be touring various centrally-protected monuments. There are many historical places in India and these 100 sites are one of them.
As a result, the Indian government decided to take advantage of the occasion to highlight some of the nation’s most notable monuments as part of the G20’s branding and publicity strategy at ASI-protected monuments and sites, with a special emphasis on those that are listed as UNESCO World Heritage Sites and one of the best places to visit in India.
According to reports, additional locations that will be illuminated during this time include Metcalfe Hall and the Currency Building, the ruins of Nalanda University, additional Rajgir monuments, the Basilica of Bom Jesus, Tipu Sultan’s Palace, Gol Gumbaz, and a number of other locations.
