Heritage sites to get looks they deserve

In a public-private partnership programme, SAIL will fund the revamp of Lodi Gardens, while the Aga Khan Trust will revamp Sunder nursery and Baoli and Atgha Khan Tomb in Nizamuddin Dargah complex.

QUTAB Minar and Humayun’s Tomb are UNESCO World Heritage sites. But a casual walk through and across the structures belies that: neither has ever had a brush with a Comprehensive Conservation Management Plan (CCMP), now made compulsory for World Heritage Status.

The good news, though, is the ASI is finally addressing the situation and is set to make complete revamp plans for both monuments for the first time.

As per UNESCO’s World Heritage site guidelines, a monument and the area around it are supposed to be “aesthetic” to the eye, with food kiosks and shops less than eyesores.
