Lodhi monuments enter ASI list

New Delhi: Three historical monuments in Lodhi Garden have finally been included in the protected list of Archaeological Survey of India (ASI). A report submitted to the Estimates Committee of the Lok Sabha has said that these three structures have been brought under Delhi Circle of ASI.

Sikander Lodhi’s tomb enclosure

A late Mughal period mosque, a turret and an enclosed garden and its gateway are the new entries in the list. With this the number of protected monuments in the garden has gone up to eight.

Sikander Lodi’s tomb enclosure, Shish Gumbad, Bara Gumbad and mosque, Mohammad Sayyid’s tomb and the Athpula (stone-bridge) are the other five sites which are already included in ASI’s centrally protected sites in Lodhi Garden.

Conservation architects have said that merely including them in the list will not save the monuments from further ruin. The building should be kept alive within its environment without tampering with the fabric of the site.

But these rules have been thrown to the winds in Lodhi Garden and many historical pieces of the monuments have been covered with grass, like steps to the Bara Gumbad. A conservation architect Ratish Nanda said, that "any alteration to the pathways, painting, fencing should be done by keeping in view the historical significance of the site".
