India's Cultural Heritage

India's Cultural Heritage

India has given the world a gift of diverse and rich heritage.

Cultural heritage is man-made heritage.

Anything that a human being has achieved or created through his or her talents, intelligence, skills and art is called a cultural year.

From Aryans, many species like Saka, Kshatrap, Kushan, Huns, Iranians, Turks, Arabs, Mughals, Parsis, English, French etc. came to India.

All these exchanges enriched Indian culture.

Since prehistoric times, India has gifted the people of the world with a lot of cultural clothing.

E.g.  The art of sculptural architecture.

This art is about 5000 years old, in which the Indus Valley civilization can be considered as an ancient relic.  Such as statues of gods and goddesses, human sculptures, animals as well as toys, bearded male sculptures and dancers.

Seeing all this gives birth to a sense of self-respect and pride towards our cultural heritage.

In the same order, a sculpture of a lion and a bull on the inverted lotus figure of the Maurya era, a statue of Buddha and statues of Jain pilgrims of the later period, the caves of Ellora during the time of the Rashtrakuta kings.

With all this, we feel respect and pride towards our cultural heritage.

Apart from this, temples, inscriptions, stupas, monasteries, chaityas, tombs, mosques, forts, domes, palaces, gates, buildings, excavated places and historical monuments can also be included.

Sabarmati Ashram, Dandi, Bardoli, Wardha, Santiniketan, Delhi etc. can also be identified as cultural heritage in the historical places of our freedom struggle.

Many important discoveries have been made in India like language, script, numbers, discovery of zero, mathematics, almanac, astronomy, iron, literature, religion, warfare, hydrology, botany, architecture, republic, judiciary, law, environmental protection etc.
