For the 2010 Commonwealth Games the Delhi Government renovated many neglected monuments. The lighting of these monuments is part of a general architectural restoration process. The basic idea was to breathe new life into these historic sites around the city and to arouse new interest among tourists. The projects observed a very strict schedule and were completed long before the Games which took place in October 2010. The well-executed restoration and the fantastic lighting created a splendid sight for tourists, showing the architectural marvels of India’s great history in their full splendour. The lighting design for emphasising the monumental beauty of the building and the supply of the luminaires needed was handled by Lucent Consultants. Both the tomb of musician Abdul Rahim Khan-I- Khana and the two Dadi and Poti tombs are lit with Maxiwoody and Miniwoody models. At night the domes are coloured, producing a marked difference between how the monuments look during the day and after dark.
