Union Minister for Religious Affairs and Culture U Ko Ko called on the government bodies and the local people to work together for MraukU to be listed on World Heritage List, at a ceremony held in Sittway yesterday morning.
There are two World Heritage sites in Myanmar (ancient Pyu cities and Bagan), and efforts are being made to make MraukU become a World Heritage Site, he said.
“MraukU cultural area is valued by the whole Rakhine people; It is a sacred place for Buddhists, as well as a cultural heritage area that reflects the socio-economic life, culture, religion, politics, artistic strength and patriotism passed down from generation to generation,” he added.
Under the guidance of the Union Minister, Rakhine State Chief Minister Dr Aung Kyaw Min said MraukU Cultural Heritage Area is the heart of the whole Rakhine State, and necessary cooperation is being carried out by the state government. He added that a practical and effective management system is required for regional development and cultural heritages in preserving the heritage of the MraukU Heritage Area.
The third photo exhibition featuring the distinctive MraukU, Anaggha Yandana Myay photo exhibition, was held for the public at U Ottama hall in Sittway, aiming to promote a spirit of keennes to maintain the heritages of MraukU.
The opening ceremony of the third photo exhibition was attended by Rakhine State government ministers, State-level departmental officials, the Director-General and officials of the Departmental of Archeology and National Museum, members of the Rakhine State Cultural Heritage Preservation Committee, photographers and charities. — Htun Htun/GNLM
