A heritage park in Hyderabad

29 March 2021

In Hyderabad, the Qutb Shahi tombs don’t usually find mention. But these tombs are marvels of architecture, design, craftsmanship and engineering. Come 2024, the Qutb Shahi Heritage Park will draw visitors from all over the world to see an outstanding conservation effort which not only puts the tombs back in all their intricacies, but revives around them 106 acres of greenery together with ancient water-harvesting structures. The Aga Khan Trust for Culture (AKTC) began the conservation project in Hyderabad in 2013, drawing on its immense success in Delhi with the revival of Humayun’s Tomb and surrounding monuments together with Sunder Nursery, Delhi’s Heritage Park. "When our work is completed in 2023-24, it is going to be a destination that people travel to Hyderabad to visit," said Ratish Nanda, CEO of AKTC in India.
