Himachal is one such state that has remained largely untouched by external customs, largely due to its difficult terrain. With the technological advancements, though the state has changed very rapidly, yet the Himachal Culture is largely intact.
Himachal is well known for its handicrafts. The carpets, leather works, shawls, paintings, metal ware, woodwork and paintings are worth appreciating.
Local music and dance reflects the cultural identity of the state. Apart from the fairs and festivals that are celebrated all over India, there are number of other fairs and festivals, including the temple fairs in nearly every region that are of great significance to Himachal Pradesh.
