Qutb Shahi Tombs seen from space

4 August 2020

The transformation of the Qutb Shahi Tombs Complex in Hyderabad can now be seen from space as the outer contours of the interpretation centre become evident in satellite imagery. But the transformation is not limited to the outer part of the complex. “This will work as an entrance to both the Qutb Shahi Heritage Park and the Golconda Fort. It is partially buried so that the views of the site remain unimpeded,” says Ratish Nanda of Aga Khan Trust for Culture. A simple museum with objects excavated at the site used to exist before the restoration/conservation work was begun by the Aga Khan Trust for Culture and the Telangana Department of Archaeology and Museums. The new centre is expected to have a gallery of artefacts from the site, the restoration timeline as well as an immersive experience centre for the visitors.
