Heritage Revitalization in Delhi, India.

Spearheaded by the Aga Khan Trust for Culture, a revitalization and restoration program has been running underway for the past several years to restore the tombs, mosques, sites, and neighbourhoods in the Nizamuddin Area. This includes the world-famous tomb of Mughal Emperor Humayun as well as the sites around - and inside - the crowded neighborhood of Nizamuddin Basti.

Neela Gumbad (Tomb) (Built: 16th-17th century)





Possibly the earliest Mughal era building in Delhi and maybe even pre-dating the tomb of Emperor Humayun, this structure as built to bury a court noble of the early Mughal era. Unfortunately, the Delhi city railway cuts through the tomb complex and thus, a full restoration is impossible. Right now, the man focus is to try and restore the tomb and gardens as much as possible.


Location of Neela Gumbad in relation to the railways:




Before:




After:






As you can see, there are still some unrestored parts on the dome and walls. The AKTC decided on this due to the presence of historical tilework that are too fragile or fragmented to be fully restored, at least not without radical changes that may harm the unique heritage of the structure. Restoration works are still underway on the surrounding garden, walls, and pathways that connect the tomb to that of Emperor Humayun's.

Interior (after):


At least they restored the internal ceiling.

Outstanding! From 70's banality back to what is presumably it's original appearance. This is revitalization at its best!

Before and after pictures of this Delhi mansion are tricky to find, but this project (still ongoing) should be noted nevertheless.

Going out of Delhi, there is this historical site.

Mahidpur Fort, Madhya Pradesh (Citadel) (Built: 17th century)

Built on the site of the ancient settlement of Mahidpur, the fort overlooked and watched the once prosperous trading town on the Dakshinapth trade route. The fort also marks the site of the decisive battle of the Third Anglo-Maratha War (1817–18) between the Marathas and British forces. This battle led to the fall of the Maratha Empire and the subjugation of central India by the British.

Hazrat Nizamuddin Baoli (Step-well) (built: 1320's)

Perhaps the last working structure of it's kind in Delhi, this pre-Mughal step-well was reputedly built during the early 1300's and used by the revered Sufi saint Hazrat Nizamuddin Auliya, making the waters sacred to many pilgrims and devotees. Over the centuries, the city of Delhi has encroached on this area and restoration works (which started in 2008) are still ongoing to preserve and revitalize this monument and the tombs surrounding it.

Isa Khan's Tomb (what else?) (built: 1547-1548)

Isa Khan Niyazi was a noble of influence at the court of Sher Shah Sur, who deposed the Mugal Emperor Humayun and ruled Delhi for a short period of time before the Mughal reconquest of the subcontinent later in the century. Restorations regarding tilework and fine details are still ongoing.

Over the past few years, they have been revamping Durham, NC... which has been awesome. This city has such a rich history and a lot of the old textile factories and tobacco buildings have been converted into coworking space, restaurants, etc..

One of the cool things about it is the city has required that all the old signage stay in place, so the buildings still have the rustic warehouse design, colors, etc.. It has made for some great music venues, eclectic startup office space, and a vibe similar to what you get in areas like Austin, Tx.. Some of the more notable areas are the American Tobacco Campus, which has the famous Lucky Strike Tower.
