Myanmar hopes ancient cities make UNESCO list

A world heritage listing would bring funds to conserve the cities of Pyu, which existed more than 2,000 years ago.

Archaeologists working in Myanmar have uncovered three ancient cities that are part of the Pyu kingdom, which came into existence in about the 1st century and lasted for about 1,000 years.

The cultural relics and religious buildings, located in Natma Taung National park, are now under consideration by UNESCO to be designated as world heritage sites.
