There are 21 monuments remaining in the present-day complex of the Lahore Fort. These monuments reflect the architectural characteristics of the historical periods they represent and the brilliance of the artistic excellence and workmanship of these eras. One of these buildings, known as the imperial kitchens, had lain in ruinous condition for a few decades. From 2016 to 2019, the Aga Khan Cultural Service - Pakistan and the Walled City of Lahore Authority took up the conservation of the historic imperial kitchens and its adaptive reuse under a 5 year development scheme for the Lahore Fort, which was approved by the government of Punjab.
