US ambassador announces completion of restoration project in Qutb Shahi Tomb Complex
The Qutb Shahi Tombs were in news recently, as the United States Ambassador to India Kenneth Juster announced the completion of a US-funded restoration project of the tombs of Taramati and Premamati within the Qutb Shahi Tombs complex.
They are 17th century tombs located in Telangana’s capital city of Hyderabad. In February 2019, the Ambassador had partnered with Aga Khan Foundation and announced a $ 103,000 grant through the Ambassadors Fund for Cultural Preservation. In 2014, the tombs received a similar grant for mapping and documenting the place’s structures.
