The illumination is taking place as a mark of respect and gratitude to the corona warriors who have contributed relentlessly in the fight against the Covid-19 pandemic.

The 100 monuments being lit up in Tricolour include Unesco World Heritage Sites -- the Red Fort, Humayun's Tomb and Qutub Minar in Delhi, Agra Fort and Fatehpur Sikri in Uttar Pradesh, Konark Temple in Odisha, Mamallapuram Rath temples in Tamil Nadu, St. Francis of Assisi Church in Goa, Khajuraho, the forts of Chittor and Kumbhalgarh in Rajasthan, the excavated ruins of the ancient Nalanda University in Bihar and Dholavira (recently accorded world heritage status) in Gujarat.
