Change in Culture and Custom
The Uttarakhand Himalaya is known for celebrating its traditional and colourful fairs and festivals throughout the year. People mainly belong to Shaiv cult, worship Lord Shiva and Goddess Shakti. They are also nature’s lover, which is reflected while celebrating fairs and festivals. Pilgrimages to the Himalaya are the centuries old practices, which has been conserving local culture since time immemorial. Recently, the modern cultural waves blown from within and outside of India have largely influenced the culture of Uttarakhand. The people of Uttarakhand are quite adaptive to absorb the influence of other culture, because they are innocent. The river valleys and tourists’ resorts are much affected due to modern mass cultural waves.
