52 Delhi Monuments To Be Transformed Into Performance Venues

The Delhi government is planning to convert monuments, under its Department of Archaeology, into spaces where “artistic interventions” can take place — transforming them into performance spaces in a bid to not just preserve but to “add utility to these spaces” from February. There are 52 lesser known monuments under the Delhi government such as the Bawana Jail and the Qudsia Bagh. An official explained, “The Qudsia Bagh is an 18th century palace and garden complex in old Delhi. It was constructed for Qudsia Begum, mother of Mughal emperor Ahmad Shah Bahadur. Apart from renovating and preserving the structures, we will also be reinvigorating the history of the space itself — allowing people to interact with it in a different manner. For instance, morning ragas or classical music could be recited or performed in this space.”
