A multitude of hydraulic structures worked in different combinations to tap, convey and thus, cater to the water requirements of Bijapur in the historic times. Today, decades of neglect, lost knowledge and fast paced developments have nearly destroyed the functioning of the waterworks as a holistic network. GN Heritage Matters, as consultants, assisted Indian Heritage Cities Network- Foundation in conducting an intensive survey of the historic waterworks, to identify and map the network, study its overall status and understand the feasibility of its revival.
