|(SCN notes that although this compilation is quite valuable, however the list below remains incomplete.
We shall endeavour to add more historical sites and monuments to the list.
We ask our members and supporters to point out any sites in their knowledge that we might have overlooked.
You are requested to send an e-mail to SCN with the name, location and a brief description of the site being recommended by you.
We believe, together, our efforts would one day bear the desired fruits. SCN would like to thank you very much for your contribution and continued support) ~ AJ
