In a similar vein David Harrison observes, ‘Whatever elements of the past are presented as heritage (…) they have already passed through a complex filtering process whereby someone, or some group, has selected them. Nothing – but nothing – is automatic heritage material’ (Harrison, 2004: 285; also see Hitchcock, 2004: 463–464). Turning a more refined lens to the history of one locale currently on the Tentative List of Indonesian World Heritage Sites enables us to gain a more nuanced perspective on the politics of the process of cultural objectification, and to better appreciate the complicated roles of local and international agents and agencies in ‘fixing’ dynamic locales.

The contestation over the temple and religious complexes of Pura Besakih in Indonesia and the local opposition to its World Heritage Site designation is an excellent case in point (I Nyoman Darma Putra and Hitchcock, 2005). : 21). In this connection, ‘local cultures develop during the dynamic process of making use of tourism to re-define their own identities’ (Yamashita, Kadir Din and Eades, 1997: 16). The situation in a tourism context is also complex because a range of actors are involved – tourists, tourism intermediaries, local people and state agents in particular.

It has not been the subject of detailed primary research but Black and Wall, in their brief comparative study of the UNESCO sites of Borobodur, Prambanan and Ayutthauya, propose that the ‘values which local people attach to a [sic] heritage are different from, though no less important than, the values ascribed to it by art historians, archaeologists and government officials’ (2001: 121).
