Restoration of Hakim's tombs nears completion in Hyderabad

Hyderabad: The restoration of the tombs of Hakim’s at the Qutb Shahi Heritage Park, which began recently, with the work of intricate craftsmanship on the west tomb, is almost nearing its end.

On Monday, Aga Khan Trust for Culture (AKTC) project manager Yoshowant Purohit told Telangana Today that the parapet minarets of the tomb to the west have been placed as per original design, after painstaking work by master craftsmen from Rajasthan. Restoration work on the mausoleums of the Hakim and Commander has been taken up with sponsorship from the Embassy of the Federal Republic of Germany based in Chennai.

It was reported earlier in these columns that the work here will include intricate restoration of the ceiling medallion inside of the tomb, only a small portion of which was available for inspection.
