    Abstract

    Mercu tanda tempatan kini semakin berkurangan disebabkan penularan budaya barat dalam landskap budaya bandar terutamanya dalam masyarakat bandar yang sedang membangun. Proses ini mendorong kepada pembentukan landskap bandar yang homogen dan yang tidak boleh dibezakan. Jika situasi ini berkekalan, ia boleh mendorong kepada pembentukan bandar yang agak ganjil/asing dan tidak bermakna pada masa depan, yang tidak mampu menjelaskan kepada penghuni mereka tentang sejarah asal dan identiti budaya. Justeru, kajian ini menegaskan tentang pentingnya pemuliharaan dan pengekalan mercu tanda tempatan dalam landskap budaya sesebuah bandar, terutamanya bandar bersejarah, sebagai modal budaya daripada setiap bangsa, dan faktor dan sifat yang menjadikan bandar-bandar tersebut berbeza di antara satu sama lain. Kajian ini diolah berdasarkan strategi kajian kes sebagai suatu strategi kualitatif dalam sains sosial. Data yang terkumpul adalah berdasarkan temu bual, pemerhatian dan kajian dokumen. Dalam kajian ini, seramai 35 orang responden (18 lelaki dan 17 perempuan) terlibat dalam temubual. Responden dipilih berdasarkan pensampelan bertujuan dan mengikut kepada soalan penyelidikan. Today, local landmarks are declining as a result of the diffusion of Western Culture in the cultural landscape of cities especially in developing urban societies. Hence, this process leads to the shaping of homogenous and non-distinguishable urban landscapes. Accordingly, if this situation persists, this would lead to the shaping of alien and meaningless cities in the future which will not be able to respond to their residents with regard to their original historical and cultural identity. Hence, this study emphasizes the importance of preserving and reviving local landmarks in the cultural landscape of cities, particularly historical cities, as cultural capital of each nation, and the factors and features that make cities distinguishable from each other. This study is designed based on case study strategy as a qualitative strategy in social sciences. The data collected is based on, interview, observation and documentary studies. In this study, 35 respondents (18 men and 17 women) participated in the interviews. The respondents were chosen based on purposive sampling and in coordination with the research questions.
