Wednesday, UNESCO included the national dish in Jordan, Mansaf, on its list of intangible cultural heritage.

Ambassador Makram Al-Qaisi, Jordan’s Permanent Representative to UNESCO, announced the success to include Mansaf on the list of intangible world heritage.

Qaisi praised the role and efforts made by official and private Jordanian institutions, in coordination with the permanent Jordanian mission to UNESCO, which culminated in the success of the Kingdom's efforts to include Mansaf to this list.

The Permanent Mission of Jordan to UNESCO submitted the file for the inclusion of “Mansaf in Jordan: A Ceremonial Feast and Its Social and Cultural Meanings” on the Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity in 2021 during the Kingdom's participation in the 17th session of the Intergovernmental Committee for the Safeguarding of the Intangible Cultural Heritage.
