India is a country with rich legacy and the ancient structures are reminiscent of its glorious past. It is our responsibility to preserve our heritage for the future by keeping them in their best form.

Thus, in order to preserve our national heritage, sites of historical importance and works of art, IndiGo has partnered with the Aga Khan Foundation.

Few years back, IndiGo looked into the restoration of the Mausoleum of Abdur Rahim Khan-i-Khana in Nizamuddin, New Delhi. At present, the prime objective is the maintenance of this historical site for the visitors, while increasing the aesthetic splendour of the Monument and its surrounding areas.

Mausoleum of Abdur Rahim Khan-i-Khana is dedicated to Rahim who is counted among India’s foremost poets. Apart from writing various couplets (Dohas), Rahim translated Babur’s memoirs - Baburnama from Chagatai to Persian language. This mausoleum was built by him for his wife in 1598, and his body was placed in it in 1627.

The key components of the project:

  • The project focusses on maintenance within the monument premises. This covers the pathways, parking, gardens, illumination, and installation of Wi-Fi system.
  • For establishing a better security provision, CCTV cameras will be installed.
