According to the Department of Archaeology and National Museum, 90 per cent of the work for MraukU of Rakhine State to be enlisted as a UNESCO World Heritage Site has been completed.
The enlistment effort has been made since 2015 to have MraukU listed as UNESCO World Heritage Site to be announced in 2024.
“There are 1,128 buildings including city hall, fort, moat, religious buildings and pagodas of Kings in Nantawya of MraukU District. If it is on the list of World Heritage Sites, it will be recognized as the best ancient fortified city of Southeast Asia,” said U Aung Aung Kyaw, director of the department.
MraukU is a city with a collection of precious ancient heritage from Rakhine history. Moreover, people can observe the artworks of the MraukU period, which is the last one among the four great eras: Dhannyawadi, Waithali, Lemro, and MraukU. The city boasts ancient heritage, architecture and historic landmarks of Rakhine kings about 1,000 years ago.
