Aga Khan Trust for Culture had taken up the restoration project in partnership with Archaeological Survey of India in 2007.
Over six years, 2,00,000 man-days of work and efforts of 1,500 conservationists and craftsmen were needed to restore the tomb of Mughal Emperor Humayun, a 16th century architectural marvel from the Mughal period.
Built in the 1560s—on a far grander scale than any of its predecessors—it was the model for the Taj, according to historians.
