Historic monuments and heritage sites across the world are important sources of knowledge, depicting the evolution of mankind. These are not only irreplaceable assets that signify the culture and civilization of the past, but also masterpieces of accomplishments that symbolize the human potential. It is for this reason that globally many organizations have taken up the initiative to safeguard and preserve the heritage sites. Over the centuries, the heritage sites have witnessed a number of natural calamities and sabotage, resulting in their present ruined condition. Access to many such heritage sites is restricted, fearing the risk of further damage by visitors. One may think of physically renovating the heritage sites in order to preserve them. However, the renovation may not only pose danger to the undamaged monuments, but may also fail to mimic the skilful work of history. It would be interesting to have a heritage site reconstructed digitally, since such a process avoids physical contact to the monuments. The digitally reconstructed heritage site may then provide an unrestricted access for viewing the monuments in their entirety. Also, in today's world, preservation of the digitally reconstructed monuments would be inexpensive. Limited metadata is available when using images for describing the resources and contents. In addition, the information needs and tasks of cultural heritage users are often complex and diverse. Moreover, historical social information including architecture, music, languages, dances, customs etc. open newer horizons for research in the area of cultural heritage.
