LENGGONG: The Perak Man will be open for public viewing at the Lenggong Archeological Gallery from Feb 15.

Tourism and Culture Minister Datuk Seri Nazri Aziz said the 10,000-year-old skeletal remains were returned to the gallery in October last year, three years after they were first put on public display at the National Museum.

“After declaring Lenggong Valley a world heritage site in 2012, Unesco suggested that the Perak Man be returned to Lenggong.

“It is being stored in a special room to preserve its condition.

“The National Heritage Dep­artment checks the temperature and humidity in the room twice daily,” he told reporters after launching the Lenggong Tradi­tional Food Carnival here on Saturday.
