New Delhi, Dec 8 (IBNS) : A day after  Kumbh Mela, the age-old mega congregation,  was listed as an Intangible Cultural Heritage under UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation), Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday said it is a matter of "immense joy and pride" for the country.

"Kumbh Mela just inscribed on the Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity. Congratulations," Modi tweeted on Friday.

On Thursday, the External Affairs Ministry said that the Intergovernmental Committee for the Safeguarding of the Intangible Cultural Heritage under Unesco inscribed Kumbh Mela at its 12th session at Jeju in South Korea.

This inscription is the third in two years for India following the inclusion of yoga and Navroz, the Parsi New Year.
