The initiative is a project of the Aga Khan Development Network

Isa Khan’s tomb, which pre-dates the building of Emperor Humayun’s tomb, is significant for its profuse ornamentation – glazed tiles, plasterwork, stone elements such as finials and lattice screens. Conservation works in the Isa Khan’s garden tomb enclosure included reconstruction of the collapsed portions of the gateway; structural repairs to the garden retaining wall; restoration of the 2.5 m high finial on the dome; major structural repairs to the Mosque; de-silting of a well discovered here, amongst others. Stone finials to the canopies as well as the tiles that covered the canopy have been restored.
