Landscape and human are the constituents of the natural surroundings in which changing occurred temporally and spatially. The relationship between landscape and environment is not seen by a singular framework or a bare structure. A landscape has different functions and characteristics, when meet specific requirements, then set an ecology in giving context. Every landscape has its own scenario based upon the dimension of human and its kinship with them. Man are the ecosystem managers, the landscape features provide a road map and built human ecology. Development is occurring by landscape change, change of environment and the kinship between human and landscape, study of these phenomena provide us a theoretical framework to assess the man land relationship as is done in this case study. This paper aims to describe how, each individual in a particular environment is participating in change of the landscape. The influence of human is a magnitude of actions upon the landscape and this magnitude shape the local landscape. The paper discussed through a brightness on the dynamics of landscape change in the 21st century due to globalization and modern dimensions and presents us a complex web of human with non-human relationship of ecology, economy and history, which alter the landscape. This paper concluded a reflection of cultural values on physical environment and landscape change to build environment and human ecology.
