Year
2014
The mausoleum, holding an important place in the historic fabric of the region, was repeatedly repaired, renovated, and expanded since its original construction. However, interventions were not thorough, and were sometimes harmful to the original structure of the mausoleum. With support from the German Federal Foreign Office, in 2011 the Aga Khan Trust for Culture commenced a project to undertake comprehensive restoration and stabilization of the Khwaja Parsa Shrine with respect to its historic character. 

The final report documents the approach, methodology and processes employed by the Aga Khan Cultural Services-Afghanistan to restore this important monument.
