UNESCO add 21 new locations to World Heritage sites

The UNESCO World Heritage is an agency of the United Nations that names landmarks worldwide on the basis of having cultural, historical, scientific or some other form of significance, and they are legally protected by international treaties.

This July, during the 41st annual World Heritage Committee session in Krakow, Poland, the agency added 21 new sites to the list.   Making a whopping 1073 across the globe.

Everything from Stonehenge to the Grand Canyon to the Taj Mahal in India have been deemed so important they must be protected and recognized as such.

So who made the list this year?
