A team from UNESCO will visit locations in Bali next month as part of a final assessment for a potential world cultural heritage nomination, a Bali Culture Agency official says.
“The teams are scheduled to be in Bali Oct. 12-17,” agency head Ketut Suastika said on Saturday in Denpasar as quoted by Antara news wire.
Suastika said that three locations had been nominated as potential world cultural heritage sites, namely Pakerisan water catchment area in Gianyar, the rice paddy field area in Jatiluwih, Tabanan and the Taman Ayun temple in Badung.
“We have been intensively renovating those locations, and especially inviting the local community commitment to support the assessment process,” he said.
The results of the visit will be shared and discussed during the UNESCO assembly in June next year.
