The Culture Ministry will tomorrow request 70 million baht in government funding to repair historical sites that remain damaged by the great floods of 2011.
The ministry will submit its proposed budget at a cabinet meeting on Tuesday, according to a report in Thai Rath.
The Fine Arts Department warned that repairs are urgently needed for 11 flood-hit religious and historical sites and government premises across the country, before flood damages worsen.
The sites include Wat Pa Moke Voraviharn in Ang Thong province, an archaeological site at Wat Koh Phraya Jeng in Nonthaburi, a National Museum building in Roi Et, and Wat Nai Rong in Bangkok.
