Kuwait Towers may find its place in list of World Heritage Edifices

The National Council for Culture, Arts and Letters (NCCAL) was working hard to get Kuwait Towers listed on the UN preparatory list of World Heritage edifices.

The MEW Assistant Undersecretary for water operation and maintenance Mohammed Boshehri, said that the NCCAL Secretary General has contacted MEW to joint efforts on achieving this goal.

NCCAL, considering the modern architectural heritage of Kuwait has been working on listing Kuwait Towers as a world heritage landmark, apart from being a form of using water resources to develop the Kuwaiti Society, Boshehri said.

He said that he hopes the application would be accepted, as it would be a major feat for Kuwait and its history of architectural achievements.

The Kuwait Towers are a group of three slender towers in Kuwait City, standing on a promontory into the Persian Gulf. Officially launched on 26th February 1977, they are considered as a landmark and symbol of modern Kuwait.
