Malaysia's latest Heritage Site - Lenggong Valley

Malaysia has a new World Heritage Site when word was received from Unesco recognising the Lenggong Valley in Perak as a World Heritage Site.

Information Minister Datuk Seri Rais Yatim said that Unesco informed the government on Friday.

Unesco recognised Leggong following the completion of archeological excavation at the site that established that complete skeletons of Perak Man is more than 11,000 years old.

Unesco had earlier recognised George Town and Malacca as World Heritage Cities and Niah Caves in Sarawak and Mount Kinabalu in Sabah.

Lenggong Valley in upper Perak is where the earliest human skeletal remains in the peninsula, the 11,000 year-old Perak man, was found in 1991.

Author i am currently running a research on Lengong Valley’s Personality, can you kindly fill in the questionnaire for me, and the same time allow the readers or whoever had visited the heritage site to fill in as well. Thanks for your kind help. Will be appreciate if you can suggest to friends who had visited the Lenggong Valley as well.
