Situated in the arid area of the Ayearwady River Plain, these old towns mirror the Pyu kingdoms that were wealthy for over 1000 years between 200 B.C. and 900 A.D. The three towns were partially archaeologically dug out and other excavations for unearthed citadel palaces, tombs and early factory buildings, as well as monuments of Buddhist stupa, partially erected ramparts and aquatic heritage that are still in use.
Hanlinn, dug out in 1904, 192930 and 196267, had a 3 x 1.6 km square stone walls with a castle in the centre. The biggest town in Pyu, Sri Kestra, was surrounded by a round stone walls with a 4.4 km wide span. NatmaTaung National Parks (Chin Hill) are now a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
In order to be inscribed on the World Heritage List, a nation must take stock of its important natural and heritage places within its borders. This" inventory" is referred to as the list of proposals and contains a prognosis of the characteristics which a Contracting State can present for registration within the next five to ten years and which can be up-dated at any given moment.
This is an important move, as the World Heritage Committee cannot consider an application for inclusion on the World Heritage List unless the properties have already been in the State Party's Proposal Lists. This is Myanmar's preliminary listing, which is presented in the organisation.
