After more than a year of work, the Jamshed Baoli (step well), which was filled with stones and debris, has finally been restored. In fact, it was also found to have the biggest catchment area at 14,000 sq. mts., which is the biggest amongst all the six baolis in Qutb Shahi tombs premises.

“We have removed about 5,000 cubic feet of stones and debris, which had been dumped into the Baoli over the years. Now there is about four feet of water inside, and we will redo the boundary walls wherever it is necessary,” said Ganesh Reddy from the Aga Khan Trust for Culture (AKTC), which is restoring the monuments in the necropolis.
