Abstract This paper identifies relationships between people, place, and history which establish cultural assets. It consists of tangible and intangible elements, both of which need to be developed in parallel to each other due to their robust relationship and great interdependency. The study was carried out using the Cultural Resource Framework which is the process of identifying and documenting cultural heritage resources by creating a database. This approach is relevant for application in the study area and also in other complex urban historic sites for purposes of safeguarding cultural heritage assets.
