The most important part of the cultural identity of the Kashmiri people is the Kashmiri(Koshur) language. This language is spoken only in the Valley of Kashmir by the Kashmiri Pandits and Kashmiri Muslims. Besides language, the Kashmiri cuisine and culture has been greatly influenced by Central Asian and Persian cultures for both communities. Cultural music and dance like Wanvun, Rouf, carpet/shawl weaving and Koshur Sufiana forms a very important part of kashmiri identity. It is important to note that Kashmiri culture is predominantly only in the Valley of Kashmir. The other regions of the Larger J&K state, such as Jammu and Ladakh are very different from Kashmir..
