Mumbai’s Restored Royal Opera House Bags UNESCO Heritage Award

Almost a year after it reopened, The Royal Opera House has been awarded the UNESCO Asia-Pacific Award for Cultural Heritage Conservation.

The building was closed to the public in 1993 and sat crumbling for years before a restoration project was undertaken eight years ago to replicate the heritage structure. It was originally inaugurated by Britain’s King George V in 1911 and completed in 1916.
