Assessing the quality of present urban life was the main aim of this paper. This research concentrated mainly on four environmental sustainability indicators: physical, social, economic, and eco-friendly factors. An attempt was made to attain sustainability by identifying and comparing various assessment indicators and, finally, to rank the weights of the sustainable elements. It was essential to analyse the sustainable indicators to have a risk-free, safe, and tranquil life that is free from pollution hazards. The challenge lay in realising this by sharing knowledge and records, which is one of the main factors in successful approaches. The present study evaluated and prioritised the indicators and factors of sustainable urban life. The concept of sustainability has become significant in the need to improve the quality of urban life. A structured questionnaire survey was conducted with 510 expert delegates who participated in an open-ended interview to identify the sustainability indicators that are focused mainly on the quality of urban life. The data was analysed using an analytic hierarchy process (AHP) to prioritise the factors for urban life sustainability.
