Iran to help restore Hyderabad’s architectural treasures

In what will be the biggest Indo-Iranian collaboration so far, the two countries are all set to come together on a project to renovate Hyderabad’s 400-year-old Qutub Shahi tombs.

Once the pride of Hyderabad, a mirror of the architectural brilliance built during the Qutub Shahi dynasty, the tombs have now fallen prey to years of poor maintenance. In a bid to save the city’s most famous monuments after the Charminar, Iran has collaborated with India to help give these 400-year-old monuments a much-needed facelift.
