Makli Necropolis Restoration

Under the guidance of Yasmeen Lari and Heritage Foundation Pakistan.

About

The capital of three successive dynasties and later ruled by the Mughal emperors of Delhi, Thatta was continuously built and rebuilt from the 14th to the 18th century. Now under threat from environmental degradation, the remains of the city and its necropolis provide insights into the social and political histories and building methodologies of Sindh – from Gujarat and Mughal architecture and Persian and Asian influences. 

As part of ongoing research and collaboration with Yasmeen Lari, Heritage Foundation Pakistan and Spiritual Chords South Africa, this restoration project forms part of Yasmeen Lari’s research into zero-carbon building techniques in the region.
