The Corona Flux

29 June 2020

The Humayun’s tomb conservation project opened Nila Gumbad to the public last September. Supported by the Trusts, the Aga Khan Trust for Culture (AKTC) worked at clearing encroachments for years, restoring the dome and the remnants of the blue tiles extant on this structure, considered to be one of the oldest tombs on the site. It’s conjectured that it even pre-dates Humayun’s tomb. The partnership between Tata Trust and AKTC continues with the permanent exhibition being set up at the upcoming site museum at Humayun’s tomb and in the Specification Manual for Built Heritage, where research and data collection is underway.
