Cultural heritage

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.

Physical or "tangible cultural heritage" includes buildings and historic places, monuments. Artifacts, etc., that are considered worthy of preservation for the future. These include objects significant to the archaeology, architecture, science or technology of a specific culture. Heritage can also include cultural landscapes (natural features that may have cultural attributes).

Cultural heritage of any country symbolizes its past and provides a source of inspiration for its future generations. Therefore protection of cultural heritage is important so that it can be transmitted to succeeding generations.

Pakistan is endowed with a large number of ancient sites and historic structures. These historic assets are our link with our past and, as the custodians, it is incumbent upon all Pakistanis to stabilize and conserve them so that they could survive for many centuries more.

But unfortunately we failed to preserve our country's heritage. Because of the ignorance of the importance of cultural heritage. We emphasize more on building new structures and things by demolishing the old ones.

Pakistan rich cultural heritage fall prey to the on going terrorists activities within its own boundaries. Swat once was a favorite tourists spot but now it has turn into war zone spot. The turmoil in Pakistan, especially the situation in places like Swat, has become threat to the safety of the country's artistic and archaeological heritage.

However little efforts are still in progress for the preservation of country's heritage. But the need is to take effective measures in order to preserve our culture heritage be it "archaeological, architectural or heritage in fine arts." Preserving heritage is also linked with the country's progress and development as it will encourage and boost the tourists industry. It will be a great source of revenue.
