Man and culture are inseparable and considered being the two sides of the same coin. One does not exist without the other. The cultural innovation was the most remarkable mechanism that led man to more and more complex setting to adapt to the new environment. In fact, culture maintains order, balance with nature and natural as well as supernatural forces through their disposition, feelings, attitudes and manners as well as in significant forms, which they give to material objects. Simply defined, cultural heritage refers to that package of cultural asset that man has created and maintained in the forms of values, norms, cultural tradition, beliefs, knowledge and range of activities that often provide meaning and substance to human life. Representing extreme variations of attitudes, beliefs and behaviors, the intangible cultural asset produces a spectacular identity of a nation, which makes an astounding spectacle of the overall psyche and sentiments of entire communities residing in that nation. In fact, intangible culture is the soul of all that we see in the tangible form of the culture. It can be pretty easy to conserve a temple or a palace but to conserve the real meaning of the temple, we should also conserve the festivals, processions, music dance and other rituals associated with it.
