How do we ensure that we give Hindu sites the equivalent representation?
I believe there are a few sides to this discussion:
- the spread of Hinduism isn't very wide (or maybe better say: thick), it's the major religion in India and Nepal but not much beyond that (in this way it differs significantly from Christianity, Islam and Buddhism)
- as rightly concluded by Durian in the Christian pilgrimage topic, there are no Hindu pilgrimage sites on the WH List; so it's a gap and we "could do something about it" via our Missing inventories; but it's not something we are going to solve in our Top 200
- Kathmandu, Ellora and Angkor will get in via different categories, they have important Hindu connections
- should we 'give' India 6 entries in the Top 200 via one category?
I really love Hampi and the Chola temples (and they will make it into my Top 200 I guess), but probably more because of the visiting experience and their general excoticness than for an objective reason.
