Life Style of Kashmiri People

Kashmir, the idyllic paradise on Earth, is home to people of diverse ethnic origins, ranging from Persia in the West to Central Asia in the North and Tibet in the East as well as people from the Northern part of India. Once on the silk route, Kashmir was open to people from various regions, people who left their mark on the culture and lifestyles of the people.

Nomads settled here and brought their traditional practices along. Mughal conquerors and Sikhs had a foothold in this region as can be seen from the landmarks and lifestyles of its people. The culture exhibits distinct lines of demarcation as well as areas where influences merge and people today have developed tolerance as well as acceptance of Hindu, Sikh, Islam and Buddhist philosophies. The diversity is seen in the way Buddhists, Hindus, Sikhs and Muslims retain their individuality and the unity can be witnessed during fairs and festivals when they come together to celebrate.
