Subsequent to the decade-long efforts undertaken by the Aga Khan Trust for Culture the revitalized Humayun’s Tomb Complex and its environment now receive almost two million visitors each year. A state-of-the-art Museum is to be built at the entrance to this World Heritage Site and Sunder Nursery with the goal of explaining Mughal heritage and the development of the Nizamuddin area over a millennium, as well as illustrating the pluralist Sufi cultural traditions that defined Hindustani culture for at least five centuries.
