All inclusive participation in protecting and preserving the cultural heritage is one of the objectives of the photo exhibition – The Bagan from the Heart.
The exhibition also aims at domestically and internationally showcasing the grand ancient edifices with their uniqueness in architectural designs and magnificent artifacts along with the natural scenery, traditional festivals and social lives of the Bagan ancient cultural zone.
Hailing the efforts to put Bagan into the world heritage list of the UNESCO, the exhibition was opened at National Museum in Yangon yesterday attended by dignitaries including the Union Minister for Religious Affairs and Culture, diplomats, photographers, the media, social organizations, sponsors and locals.
After the speeches by the Union Minister, a Yangon Region minister and the head of UNESCO Yangon, a consultant of the global body explained the method of listing in the world heritage list.
Co-sponsored by Bagan branch of the Department of Archaeology, National Museum and Library, Metta Moe Parahita group and Myanmar Photographers Association, the exhibition continues till 15 May.
Organizers hope that the exhibition will also arouse the spirit of cherishing and valuing the ancient cultural heritage apart from reinforcing the efforts to put Bagan into world heritage list. —Myanmar News Agency
