Frescos of 17th century Delhi monument revamped

Restoration work is underway at the tomb of Muhammad Quli Khan in Delhi's Mehrauli Archaeological Park ahead of the G20 Summit in September. The tomb, which dates back to the early 17th century, features intricate frescoes that have lost their lustre over the years. Fresco artists from Bhopal and Gwalior are using a unique painting technique to restore the artwork to its original state. The restoration work is expected to be completed in a week, and a protective layer will be applied to prevent future damage.
