Sri Lanka was lobbying the USESCO to declare the pilgrim route from Seruvila in the Eastern Province to Sripada via Mahiyangane as a world heritage site, officials said today.

The UNESCO has already declared the central highlands of Knuckles, Horton Plains and Sripada as natural world heritage sites given their unique and universal biodiversity and species endemic to Sri Lanka. However, the religious and cultural aspect of Sripada was not considered in this respect.

UNESCO Country Director Preethi Perera told Daily Mirror today that the International Council for Monuments and Sites (ICOMS), a UNESCO-affiliated body, did not consider the religious importance of Sripada because Knuckles and Horton Plains did not have any such significance. (KB)

    Deserving. There are many other sites in Sri Lanka worthy of consideration.

    Why do we need UNESCO? We should be able to protect our historical sites. Being such a proud country why are we begging before these UN organizations?
