"It is a matter of great pride that our Pink City Jaipur has been declared as a world heritage site by UNESCO. It will add to the glory of the capital city of Rajasthan," he tweeted.

Gehlot said that that entry into the list is not only a matter of prestige but will give a boost to tourism while benefitting the local economy and help in improving infrastructure.
