Mughal era tomb facing neglect

The Milli Gazette Online

New Delhi: Roshanara Bagh is the place where the tomb of Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan’s daughter Roshan Ara Begum is situated. The garden has lost its glory because it has been encroached upon by a temple and a akhara and the mausoleum vandalised by drug peddlers in search of precious stones. 

The tomb of the princess was enclosed by a cemented jali but now nothing exist neither the jali nor the boundary grill. 

The garden had many structures, but now only the tomb, a gateway and a dry water channel remain. The ASI had restored the water tank and tomb’s front wall but the work has now worn off. An ASI official on duty at the tomb conceded that material used for restoration was not good. The southern part of the gateway of the tomb has collapsed and the fountains gone. The monument is facing neglect despite the fact that it is a centrally protected monument and the garden is run by MCD.

Conservation architect Ratish Nanda says that the Roshanara tomb and the garden are amongst the most significant historical buildings and can easily become a tourism spot. But it will need restoration of the garden and tomb.
