Abstract

While it is important that the conservation and protection provided to a place has to be on the basis of historic, archaeological, architectural and other values the sustainability of these measures has to be also ensured. Heritage tourism provides an avenue of providing sustenance to these valuable conservation efforts. Tourism not only provides the economic sustenance to these conservation programs but also becomes the raison d’etre once the community gains economically and recognizes the significance of heritage in gaining economic security. It restores a sense of pride among the community about the place.
