Cultural heritage is the legacy of physical artifacts and intangible attributes of a group or society that are inherited from past generations, maintained in the present and bestowed for the benefit of future generations. Cultural heritage includes tangible culture (such as buildings, monuments, landscapes, books, works of art, and artifacts), intangible culture (such as folklore, traditions, language, and knowledge), and natural heritage (including culturally significant landscapes, and biodiversity).
The faith and tradition of preaching and worshiping of each other’s religions and pilgrimage centres has been a very unique and glorious tradition of the people of the State. The famous Hindu shrines and the equally famous Muslim pilgrimage centres are held in highest esteem by the people of every faith. The offerings made and obeisance paid at such places by people of all faiths has baffled and even bothered the conservative elements across the globe.
