via The Nation, 12 July 2019: At the recent Unesco World Heritage Committee meeting in Azerbaijan, Thailand adds two sites, Si Thep Historical Park and a group of temple sites in Buri Ram province, into the tentative list. Action was also asked on the buffer zone for the Ayutthaya Historical Park.

The Culture Ministry is ramping up conservation efforts at archaeological sites in Phetchabun and Buri Ram after Unesco placed them on its world heritage waiting list.

The Unesco World Heritage Committee included Si Thep Historical Park in Petchabun and the Ensembles of Phanom Rung, Muang Tam and Plai Bat Sanctuaries in Buri Ram on this year’s tentative list at its June 30-July 10 meeting in Azerbaijan.
