ISLAMABAD: The National Institute of Folk and Traditional Heritage (Lok Virsa) has set up a Turkish Link Passage at its Pakistan National Museum of Ethnology (Heritage Museum) to provide an insight to the rich heritage of Turkey for the visitors.
Talking to APP, an official of the Lok Versa said the Link Passage would help bring people of two countries even closer as they shared common history, cultural and social values.
The newly established Link Passage depicts similarities between Pakistan and Turkey in the field of art, crafts, culture and traditions with a key focus on design, colors, motifs, kilims, saz, henna, tea, traditional leather shoes and others.
The area for Link Passage has been provided by Lok Virsa whereas the artifacts which have been put on display have been catered to by the Turkish Embassy.
Heritage Museum which was established in 2004 already showcases the cultures of other brotherly and friendly countries like Iran, Saudi Arabia, Central Asian States and China.
