Culture and Traditions of Kashmir

The culture and traditions of Kashmir, a region in northern India (India-administered Kashmir consisting of Jammu and Kashmir), northeast Pakistan (Pakistan-administered Kashmir consisting of Azad Kashmir and Gilgit-Baltistan) and the Chinese territory of Aksai Chin.

The culture of Kashmiri is a diverse blend and highly influenced by northern South Asian as well as Central Asian culture. Along with its scenic beauty, Kashmir is famous for its cultural heritage; it amalgamates Muslim, Hindu, Sikh and Buddhist philosophies and has involved composite culture based on the values of humanism and tolerance.

The major languages are Shina, Burshuski, Balti, Laddakhi and Tibetan in the North and Kashmiri, Dogri, Pahari, Pothwari Hindko and Gojri in rest of the state.
