Memphis and its Necropolis—the Pyramid Fields from Giza to Dahshur on Egypt's western bank of the Nile—were designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1979.
Egyptian Ka, Ba, and Akh represented different facets of the soul’s existence in the afterlife journey. The Ka needed sustenance to continue its existence in the tomb; the Ba was the aspect of the soul that could move freely and interact with the living; and the Akh was the ultimate goal of the soul’s transformation, leading to eternal life among the gods. Proper burial practices and funerary rituals were crucial to ensuring the well-being of these soul aspects and securing a favorable outcome in the afterlife for the deceased.
Nalanda University Ruins, i.e., the Archaeological Site of Nalanda Mahavihara at Nalanda, Bihar, India, was a UNESCO World Heritage Site from 2016 onwards.
