On World Heritage Day, April 18, also known as the International Day for Monuments and Sights, EPIC Channel will be broadcasting a special lineup of shows highlighting India’s cultural and architectural heritage.
India is home to 37 World Heritage Sites officially recognised by the UN and UNESCO. To raise awareness about the importance of protecting various heritage sites around the world, the channel will also be broadcasting episodes from the acclaimed travel-history series Ekaant.
There will be two EPIC Specials. One is Jungle ke Baahubali, a crusade into India’s scenic and unique wetland canvases and the wildlife within them. The other special show will be Rampath, which UNESCO recognises as the world’s best ‘field Ramleela’ categorised as UNESCO intangible heritage. The show will focus on the Ramleela performed on the roads of Jawant Nagar.
The channel will also be covering historical sites such as Champaner, Hampi, Kumbalgarh, Vijaydurg and Nalanda.
The shows will be aired this World Heritage Day on April 18 from 12:30 pm to 7 pm.
