Many old buildings protected by law are part of a nation’s history. Some people think they should be knocked down and replaced by news ones. How important is it to maintain old buildings? Should history stand in the way of progress?

Most nations around the world have at least some, or possibly many, old buildings
such
as temples, churches and houses in their cities, villages and surrounding areas which have historical significance. In my opinion, it is very important to maintain these, but
this
does not mean progress should stop. Preserving certain old buildings is important for several reasons.
Firstly
, these structures
provide
Suggestion
provides
an insight into the
history
of our countries, showing us how people many centuries ago lived their lives. Without them, we could only learn
by
Suggestion
from
books, and it would undoubtedly be sad if
this
were the only way to see them. Many of these buildings are
also
very beautiful. Take
for example
the many religious buildings
such
as churches and temples that we see around the world. Not only
this
, but on a more practical level, many of these buildings provide important income to a country as many tourists visit them in great numbers.
However
,
this
certainly does not mean that modernization should be discouraged. I believe that old buildings can be protected in tandem with progress.
For example
, in many circumstances we see old historic buildings being renovated whilst maintaining their original character, and being used for modern purposes.
Also
, in no way does
history
hinder progress, and in fact it is the opposite. By studying and learning about our
history
, we understand more about the world we live in, and
this
helps us to build a better future. To conclude, I believe that it is very important to protect and preserve old buildings as we can learn about our
history
as can others from other countries.
Such
knowledge can
also
help us to understand how to modernize our countries in the best way.
