Summary/Abstract: That sheer quantity of submerged human history has led monuments and wrecks to be considered in terms of “cultural heritage” rather than mere submerged objects. And it has become a subject of conservation through convention and proper legislation by the state as cultural heritage. It implies something worth preserving and warranted an active state legislative and administrative action for its conservation. This paper is based on importance of underwater cultural heritage (UCH) and UNESCO convention, as guiding principle for the state to frame appropriate legislation, regulations and administrative actions to conserve underwater cultural heritage.
