          Abstract

          The distinct landscape of the Kinta Valley is undeniably unique in its ability to narrate significant processes in Peninsular Malaysia’s history and culture. Tin mining brought about massive development to the Valley’s landscape, evidenced in the making of modern Kinta and Kampar Districts today. The focus of this paper is accordingly upon the potential of Kinta Valley as a World Heritage Listed mining cultural landscape having regard to the status of derelict mining sites internationally and their inclusion on the World Heritage List. The rich cultural tapestry that is evident today provides a significant living heritage platform to understand and appreciate the diversity of Malaysia’s cultural landscapes.
