Description

Hazrat Nizamuddin Basti, located in the heart of Delhi, is one of the densest ensembles of medieval Islamic buildings of India. Along with its built heritage, it holds within a deep sense of tradition and culture reflected in the arts, poetry, music and cuisine of the area.
 
This volume reviews the challenges of urban development around the 28 monuments of national significance located in the Basti, Sunder Nursery and the World Heritage Site of Humayun’s Tomb, spread across 250 acres of land in the city.
 
Based on the work carried out by the Aga Khan Development Network over a period of seven years, this book presents a set of guidelines for development around the monuments that are aimed at revitalizing historic neighbourhoods, improving accessibility to heritage structures and rebuilding lives. The guidelines are based on extensive mapping and discussions with various stakeholders.
 
Founded and guided by His Highness the Aga Khan, the Aga Khan Trust for Culture projects promote the conservation and re-use of buildings and public spaces in historic cities in ways that can spur social, economic and cultural development.
