At a ceremony held at the Bhadrakali Temple premises in Ahmedabad, Chief Minister Shri Bhupendra Patel attended the commemoration of UNESCO’s declaration designating Gujarat’s Garba as an Intangible Cultural Heritage. Chief Minister Shri Bhupendra Patel sought the blessings of Maa Bhadrakali and observed a cultural program featuring diverse forms of Garba dances.


Today, UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization) officially announced the recognition of Gujarat’s distinctive cultural element, Garba, as an Intangible Cultural Heritage, with the announcement made in the state of Botswana.


Commemorating this momentous achievement, significant events took place at the Bhadrakali Temple premises in Ahmedabad, the Ambaji Temple premises in Banaskantha, the Pavagadh Temple premises in Panchmahal, and the Bahucharaji Temple premises in Mehsana. This cultural celebration showcased traditional Garba and marked a noteworthy milestone in the state’s cultural heritage.


in addition to the main festivities in Ahmedabad at the Bhadrakali Temple premises, the celebration featured a special cultural program highlighting traditional Garba, emphasizing this historic accomplishment. The program was also broadcast live to all other districts of the state, earning praise from the local community present at the venues.


In a statement, the current Minister of State (MoS) for Sports, and Youth Service, Shri Harsh Sanghavi, expressed that today is a day of pride for the Gujaratis living across the globe. The traditional Garba, celebrated in Gujarat’s streets and cities, has now achieved recognition as a vital part of the cultural heritage of Gujaratis worldwide. With UNESCO’s historic announcement, Gujarat’s Garba will gain global acknowledgment, elevating the recognition of both Gujaratis and Gujarat’s Garba on the world stage.


Additionally, Shri Harsh Sanghvi highlighted that for Gujarati, the sound of Garba resonating anywhere in the world signifies the commencement of Garba, symbolizing their unwavering commitment and boundless love for this unique cultural expression. An ardent devotee of Maa Amba and the Prime Minister of India, Shri Narendra Modi, has been committed to promoting the cultural heritage of the state on the global platform. With his leadership, the lively Navratri festival, originating in the state, has gained substantial global popularity, earning the distinction of being the longest festival celebration worldwide, as acknowledged by him.


Notably, with the inclusion of Gujarat’s Garba in UNESCO’s intangible heritage list, a total of 15 cultural heritages, spanning the country’s festivals, fairs, traditions, and regional dances, now hold a place of distinction on this prestigious list.

In celebration of this historic accomplishment, a cultural event was arranged in Ahmedabad. The gathering included esteemed guests such as Shri Amit Shah, Shri Babusinh Jadav, Shri Kaushik Jain, Shri Dinesh Kushwaha, Shri Amul Bhatt, Smt Darshana Vaghela, Dr. Payal Kukrani, and city councilors.
