Qutb Shahi Heritage Park - 2014 Annual Report

The Qutb Shahi Heritage Park is a unique site with no other necropolis, anywhere in the world, matching the grandeur, diversity and completeness – the latter as mausoleums representing the entire reign of the Qutb Shahi’s stand here. Apart from the tombs the site boasts of several mosques, large baolis or step-wells, garden structures and one standing hamam or bath-house.

With the Aga Khan Development Network and the Sir Dorabji Tata Trust & Allied Trusts both committed to undertaking development projects in Hyderabad, it was in 2011 that the Tomb complex was first considered to be the focus of a major urban conservation project coupled with landscape restoration. The state government was welcoming from the start and this led to a collaborative exercise to carry out an exhaustive architectural documentation of the structures and topographical surveys in 2012.
