Knock! knock!

The old images of this place taken around the end of 19th Century or early 20th century show this place in ruins. This place has been restored since, by a lot of benefactors including the British Army, the Agha Khan foundation and the Archaeological Survey of India. The inside of the dome has been repaired and all of the original art from there is lost, so are most of the blue ceramic tiles from the smaller domes. Even these grills are not the original. On display among other things was a slab of stone describing how this "jaali" is made complete with a finished hexagon of the pattern.
