Abstract: Landscape is a formal expression of the numerous relationships existing in a given period between the individual or a society and a topographically defined territory, the appearance of which is the result of the action, over time, of natural and human factors and of a combination of both. Study of the cultural values in landscape serves several different ends simultaneously and apart from its function of systematic description it provides for regional classification, affords insight into the role of man in geographic transformations and throws light upon certain aspects on cultural communities in themselves Cultural landscapes fall in the category of landscapes which have been formed due to nature-human interaction and understanding of co-existence and co-dependence. These are shaped owing to the cultural value systems in the form of various practices and rituals.
Keywords: Numerous relationships existing, topographically defined territory, regional classification, geographic transformations, Cultural landscapes, nature-human interaction.
