The 14th-century baoli is a protected monument under the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI). Built by Hazrat Nizamuddin Auliya, the baoli is being conserved as part of the ‘Humayun’s Tomb-Sunder Nursery-Hazrat Nizamuddin Basti Urban Renewal project’ by the Aga Khan Trust for Culture (AKTC), in partnership with the Central Public Works Department, the Municipal Corporation of Delhi and the Aga Khan Foundation.

When the Hazrat Nizamuddin ki Baoli was cleaned to its original depth for the first time in 800 years and given a facelift, the process threw open two interesting revelations. A blocked passage, possibly used by Hazrat Nizamuddin Auliya to access the baoli (a stepped well) from his adjoining mosque, and a well with seven streams are no longer hidden from the public eye.
