Already inscribed, still on T List

Inscribed WHS (or parts thereof) that are still mentioned on the official Tentative List of the State Party. This may be because of an oversight, or because the State Party wants the site to be nominated for different reasons and in different boundaries than those for which it has already been inscribed.

The connection belongs to World Heritage Process connections.
