Countries and nations are recognized by their cultural heritage. What is cultural heritage ? The rich treasures of traditions, art, and craft which a nation inherits. People should never forget their traditions because these traditions are a part of our identity. So traditions of a nation or a country should be kept alive. We all are aware and conscious of the rich treasures we posses. Our culture, our traditions are something we should be very proud of and their perseverance is necessary. People of Pakistan are very hard working creative and artistic as well. Things and articles made by them are admired all over the world. Specially, folk tales, folk songs, and folk music have their own charm and people really enjoy them.

Pakistanis have special love for beauty which can be detected in their work and handicrafts made by them.
