dc.description.abstractReligion is still a large driving force behind the manner in which people live today. Religion, especially the predominant practices that date back to our ancestors, is a driving force behind culture. It creates traditions that have been passed onto us consciously and subconsciously. Norms such as customs, rituals, routines and patterns are subconsciously inherited, contributing to the culture of a community. Together, religion and tradition influence and provide a base for culture. These two factors, when combined, create a structure in our lives which contributes towards finding meaning within our lives. A society with a strong sense of belonging has an affirmed identity in the urban environment, contributing to the sense of place found in the urban fabric by attaching meaning and memory. Thus an environment is created that combats the rapid pace movement of globalization.en
