According to Culture Minister Sudawan Wangsuphakijkosol, the Ministry of Culture intends to designate Phra Nakhon Khiri National Historical Park, or Khao Wang, as a Unesco World Heritage Site.

The Fine Arts Department has been asked to conduct a feasibility study of pushing the traditional land for Unesco’s preliminary list, according to Ms. Sudawan during the commission’s mobile meeting on Tuesday.

As a aristocratic summer surrender, King Rama IV built the 165-year-old Phra Nakhon Khiri, which is situated on a hill.

The complex features a mix of classical and Chinese architecture, including a palace, a temple, and different group of buildings.

Phra Nakhon Khiri is one of the three houses referred to in Phetchaburi’s title– Muang Sam Wang, or the City of the Three Palaces.

The various two palaces, Mrigadayavan Palace and Phraram Rajanivet Palace, are also in the list.

Khao Wang has excellent factual potential and meets the requirements for being a world heritage site, according to director-general of the Fine Arts Department Phanombut Chantarachot.

According to him, the webpage encompasses both Eastern and Western ethnicities, is home to an old house, and is surrounded by lush character.

The area is also common among tourists, attracting more than 200, 000 customers and generating more than 15 million ringgit in profit periodically, he said.

The government will soon be given a preliminary report of the feasibility study, according to Mr. Phanombut, for consideration.

Culture Minister Sudawan likewise visited Ban Lat and the Thai Song Dam ethnic communities in Khao Yoi and Ban Tham Rong.

Ms. Sudawan claimed that the government had approved a draft law to help the lives of ethnic groups. Their traditions and customs, which have been passed down from generation to generation, are initially protected by this law. The state’s strong cultural identity is playing an essential part in pushing forward Thailand’s smooth energy policy, she said.

Ms. Sudawan urged the Fine Arts Department to carry out its criteria for protecting the nation’s traditional websites.

She suggested that some measures be put in place to improve the ability of the websites to accommodate both domestic and international visitors without compromising their historical significance.

” The government will operate on preparing different historical sites in different regions for Unesco’s thought”, she said, adding the listing included the town of Chiang Mai.
