Heritage Promoters “Knowledge Walk”
Heritage is our legacy from the past, what we live with today, and what we pass on to future generations. Culture is a system of behaviors, nature of interpersonal relationship, customs, manners, mores and values developed over the millennia of history and shared by people speaking different languages, following different faiths, observing a host of fairs, festivals and rituals and preserving specific cultural clues and cues. These sites need protection and preservation from cultural or natural perspective for contributing to humanity for which they are identified as World Heritage Site. According to United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), ‘World Heritage Site is a place (forest, mountain, lake, desert, monument, building, complex or even a city) that is listed by the UNESCO as of special cultural or physical significance.’
