The Mughal pavilion was discovered in a ruinous condition on the proposed route of the ‘tunnel road’ proposed by Delhi Government for the Commonwealth games. Together with the urgently needed conservation of the structure a garden setting for the monument was designed. The overgrown setting of the pavilion was replaced by a char-bagh similar in the centre of which stands the pavilion. The southern retaining wall uncovered during clearance works was also carefully conserved.

Plants such as Hibiscus and Chandni that balance the modest proportions of the Garden Pavilion were planted close to the monument. To the south of the pavilion, access from the parking area and peripheral road are grit-finish pathways through preserved Guava orchards to the Pavilion.Additional trees were planted in this area as it is edged by a dense tree growth towards the eastern and western edges. The area to the north of the pavilion has been levelled to have the same level connecting the grave platforms at the northern end of the nursery.
