The Kinabalu World Heritage Site Gallery has become the latest attraction at Kinabalu Park, here, showcasing the park’s unique features and rich natural heritage, befitting its status as a World Heritage Site.

It was offically declared open two days ago by state Assistant Minister of Tourism, Culture and Environment Datuk Ellron Angin in conjunction with Kinabalu Park’s 10th anniversary as a World Heritage Site.

Sabah Parks research and education coordinator Rimi Repin said the gallery comprised three sections one of which was a three-dimensional display of the park’s physical features.

The other sections are a diorama landscape showcasing the park’s biodiversity, and information on the park’s selection as a World Heritage Site by Unesco.

Rimi said since its opening, a total of 2,300 people had visited the gallery, with the landscape hall being the main attraction.

Kinabalu Park also has several other information centres namely a botanical park, butterfly park, Rafflesia centre, tropical garden and an orchid conservation centre at the Poring Hot Spring in Ranau.
