Capacity building and raising awareness through education and training is key to conservation, development, and preservation of centuries’ old spiritual heritage tourism sites, places, and spiritual places of worship, monuments, cultural, and natural heritage in India and Pakistan. India and Pakistan have numerous centuries old sites from the ancient to the medieval period; Buddhist, Islamic, and Hindu spiritual heritage tourism sites and monuments, which need to be preserved through capacity building and making people aware of conservation of these cultural and natural spiritual heritage. These spiritual cultural and natural heritages have to be protected and preserved from natural disaster and vandalism by the people and visitors for future generations. Public and private partnerships are required for capacity building at global, national, and regional level to reap the cultural, social, recreational, and economic benefits for sustainable long-term impact from spiritual heritage preservation, protection, and promotion.
