Bali's Governor, Dewa Beratha, has asked the central government in Jakarta to forward his proposal to the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) for four sites in Bali to be added to the list of world heritage sites.

The sites nominated by the Governor include:

Taman Ayun Temple - the classic temple surrounded by a moat in Mengwi

The River Basin Surrounding the Pakerisan River - home to archaeological evidence of Bali's early Hindu and Buddhist settlement.

Paddy Fields at Jatiluwih Village in Tabanan - arguably Bali's oldest and most complex example of the Subak rice terrace system.

The Bali Barat National Park - a 19,534 hectare national park in West Bali and home to the endangered Bali Starling.

Last year a proposal from Indonesia's Minister of Culture and Tourism, I Gede Ardika, to name Bali's Besakih Temple Complex as a World Heritage Site met with strong opposition from local religious groups, concerned that UNESCO status would somehow deprive Bali Hindu's of the unimpeded access to Bali's main religious site.

Indonesia currently is home to six UNESCO World Heritage Sites – the Borobudur Temple Complex; Ujung Kulon National Park; Komodo National Park; Prambanan Temple Compound; the Sangiran Early Man Site; and the Lorentz National Park.
