|2009||Tentative list||Submitted as tentative site by State Party|Darmawati (Indonesia):
Muarajambi temple compound is an outstanding heritage of culture and nature. The landscape is even gorgeous. Here we learn how the old malay people live and the culture and the development of the culture to date. They even share how to save water and protect landscape with the canals surrounding each temple compound and surrounding whole location which is also functioned as protection system and boundary between the profound and sacral area with the outside part. It is not only the temple, or archaeological heritage within, but also the nature which is soooo outstanding. Here, some artifacts have been found and some ceramics from local and various foreign countries which represent that this area was very important place at that time, for even oreign voyagers and traders. For me, Muarajambi is absolutely worth for being world heritage!.
