German Funds For Qutb Shahi Heritage Park

The German Federal Foreign Office will be supporting the Aga Khan Trust for culture in its efforts to conserve 3 domed tombs known as Commander and Hakim’s Tomb of the Qutb Shahi Heritage Park with Rs. 55.6 lakh from its cultural conservation fund. The Qutb Shahi Heritage Park is located at the foot of the majestic Golconda Fort and is spread over 106 acres. This necropolis of the Qutb Shahi dynasty, that ruled the region for 169 years in the 16th – 17th centuries, includes 40 mausoleums, 23 mosques, 6 baolis (step-wells), a hamam (mortuary bath), pavilions and garden structures set within a heritage zone of international significance. These structures of the Deccani kingdoms reflect a unique synthesis of architectural styles.

The Aga Khan Trust for Culture team as a precursor to the Conservation Plan has carried out 2000 drawings of the monuments in addition to topographical surveys wherein each minor feature of the site has been mapped including trees. The conservation works will include state-of-art technology.
