Over the course of thousands of years, human civilisation has travelled a far distance. The civilisation has grown and flourished in a number of notable locations. The benefits of development were felt by a sizable population and diffused over a sizable area. Particular cultures emerged as a result of people adopting the ideologies, way of life, rituals, and social behaviour that developed in important locations. Traditions were created when certain actions and life styles were followed for a long time by members of a specific group. As a result, we can see that culture and tradition are crucial components of any community and have been for a very long time. We come across monuments that are symbolic of and connected to a certain community or culture. Monuments are examples of a civilisation that tell of its former grandeur and are still visible now, serving as a transitional site between the past and present. Although some of the monuments have crumbled over the course of their hundreds or thousands of year history, they continue to inspire us with their cultural and traditional values. This is the justification for maintaining our monuments.
A rich cultural history dates back to prehistoric times in Kashmir. We learn about Kashmir’s historic cultural heritage since we find the name of the region in our sacred books. There are numerous locations and monuments that are linked to Kashmir’s ancient civilisation. They continue to remain as monuments to former splendour and serve as a reminder of the long history of civilisation. Monuments serve as a symbol of cultural identity and provide guidance for coming generations. Monuments and locations with cultural significance must be protected as a result. Any society that has lost touch with its past is destined to repeat the mistakes and blunders that have already been made and is cut off from its rich cultural legacy.
Monuments are essential as historical inspiration instruments and will always serve as a source of instruction for the general public. However, their significance can only be maintained if we visit them with due care and respect and take in the cultural, pacifist, and harmonious message that they offer. We need to make these locations accessible via a variety of modes of transportation, offer some basic amenities to visitors, and properly communicate the cultural and historical significance of the location and the legendary figures linked with it. The current generation will then be able to connect with their deep historical cultural roots as a result. Although these facilities must be provided, attention must be made to preserve the monument’s historical singularity and preserve its original old identity. Commercialisation that is unwanted and unchecked must be kept at bay.
Monuments serve as a reminder of our rich cultural past, as well as a national treasure and a source of civilisation pride. They educate foreign tourists about the historical splendour of that culture in addition to inspiring the locals about their own past. We must conduct accurate, authentic research on our cultural history before educating our culture about it. The impact of harmful brainwashing by outside agencies will also significantly lessen as people begin to recognise their rich and old cultural roots. People must be proud of their cultural heritage and of being a part of an old culture. They should also resist the negative ideologies promoted by certain organisations. that only led to one thing: self-destruction. A visit to a historical or culturally significant monument is highly important in moving things in that direction. Thus, it is important for us to protect our cultural landmarks, take inspiration from them, and inform the next generation about our rich cultural legacy.
