Three historical sites in Bali have listed into World
As it is exposed by some medias either local or international
that the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural
Organization (UNESCO) has added three sites, which have
been being the most tourism object since tens even hundreds
years ago. Those historical sites include Pakerisan Valley,
Jatiluwih Rice Terraces and Taman Ayun Temple are then
included into the seven sites in Indonesia into the World
Cultural Heritage Sites.
Based on the criteria of originality, supported from
the local culture and the antiquity of the site, the following
three Bali locations are now on the UNESCO list, include
first historical site is Pakerisan Valley. It is
actually the river valley, which is situated in Gianyar
Regency. The valley containing the prehistoric and pre-Majaphahit
archaeological sites providing evidence of Bali's early
Hindus and Buddhist settlement.
The second one is Jatiluwih Rice Terraces. This
picturesque and mystifying terraces found only in Bali.
It is situated in the region of Tabanan and this site
is among the most striking examples of terraced agriculture
in the world. Arguably Bali's oldest and most complex
example of the Subak rice terrace system of agriculture.
the third site is Taman Ayun Temple, an eighteenth
century temple complex at Mengwi surrounded by a pool.
The place looks like a tiny island, which is surrounded
by the ocean.
Prior to the latest additions, Indonesia was home to
just seven UNESCO World Heritage Sites - the Borobudur
Temple Complex; Ujung Kulon National Park; Komodo National
Park; Prambanan Temple Compound; the Sangiran Early Man
Site; and the Lorentz National Park; and the Tropical
Heritage Rainforest of Sumatra.
