Bu Halima's Garden, Delhi (Enclosure) (built: 16th-17th century)

This Mughal-era tomb garden was disfigured during the British Raj, whom built modern carriage roads and tore down historic walls.

Walled City of Lahore, Pakistan (Citadel) (Built: 1500's onward)

Besides India, the Aga Khan Trust for Culture has also been active in neighboring Pakistan, restoring the historic old sights and buildings of Lahore for the past half-decade despite numerous obstacles.

I love it when overhead wires are removed. I think that should be done for all cities. It's almost impossible to take good architectural photos here in Toronto because of them.

Same here. We're trying to do that in our heritage sites, though it has been a wild ride.

Cartagena de indias,Colombia,ancient Palace of the Inquisition today is a museum of history

In September 1610 it was instituted the Inquisition in Cartagena de Indias. Its jurisdiction covered the New Kingdom of Granada and Venezuela to Nicaragua, Panama, Santo Domingo and the Windward Islands. The Sentencing Court of the Holy Office had its headquarters here. This building is considered one of the typical civil architecture of Cartagena de Indias eighteenth century houses. They are distributed inside what were prisons and torture chambers at the time. The Inquisition aimed to prosecute crimes against the Christian faith, and never acknowledged innocent.

The Holy Office in Cartagena remained until 1811 when he broke the independence movement and the inquisitors were expelled. Then they would return in 1815 with Pacifier Pablo Morillo, until 1821, when they were finally eradicated.

The facade of the Palace of the Inquisition, the gates at the bottom and balconies on the top floor are the characteristics of the colonial house in the city. The main entrance is Baroque with mixtilíneas moldings.
Before. 1871

Now.

Cartagena de Indias former convent of santa clara
The year was 1621, almost four centuries ago, when the Poor Clares -inspiradas by the Holy of the Portiuncula and financed from donations- alms and finally managed to settle in what would be his home for 240 years. The cloister had taken its first form following the strict canons of Catholic architecture of the era: square configuration, robust and closed to the outside walls, central courtyard, arches, refectory, infirmary, cells, grilles and louvres that prevented their inhabitants be seen by prying eyes. They inhabited this area for many years and austere monastic life, silence, prayers and closure, while outside the walls withstood the ravages of city life, the swell, pirates and salt.

It was the mid-nineteenth century when, when promulgating the law of confiscation of mortmain, goods to the Catholic Church and its religious orders were confiscated. Clarisse had to leave home, and on his journey all traces of their presence in that space away. The walls of the old convent then braved the passage of time and neglect, harbored a prison, and then received in 1884 and for nearly a century, the Hospital de La Caridad.
Before. 1981

Now.

Poor Mogadishu, that city (and entire failed state) really need a lot of help to raise out of the serious problems. Very sad about that region...

True, the city and country needs a lot of help. But to many Somalis, the worst of the wars has now passed and bit by bit, everyone is starting to stitch the pieces together. The Somalia thread is fast becoming my new place to visit/lurk now, just to see the country's recovery.

India has superb architectural jewels! It's such a pleasure seeing them being brought back to their former glory.

Chota Batashewala, Delhi (Tomb) (built: 16th century)

One of the many structures in the Humayun complex, this tomb was so destroyed that a full restoration was deemed impossible. Instead, the site was partially restored based on the excavated floorplans, old photographs, and approximate designs based on nearby Mughal-era structures.
