Description: Hauz Khas village was known in the medieval period for the amazing...
Hauz Khas village was known in the medieval period for the amazing buildings built around a reservoir and drew a large congregation of Islamic scholars and students to the Madrasa for Islamic education. Today, some of India's most prestigious institutes are situated in the neighborhood, including the Indian Institute of Technology, the All India Institute of Medical Sciences and the Indian Institute of Foreign Trade. The village itself retains its old-world charm, enhanced by well-manicured green parks planted with ornamental trees all around with walk ways, and surrounded by gentrified market and residential complexes which have sprung up around the old village. The reservoir itself has been reduced in size and well landscaped with water fountains. The village structure that existed in the medieval period was modernized in mid-1980s, projecting a quiet, upscale identity that attracts tourists from all parts of the world.

Not a village per say

There were a lot of appartments and high rise buildings. Some were still being built during the time visited this place.

Hauz Khas Village is a lovely place to go. It has several ethnic restaurants, nice boutiques and a place to hang out. One can spend a day there if you are looking for a quality food restaurant and a good shopping experience.

Had a spare time in Delhi so decided to spend it instead of visiting historical monuments which everyone does. It is not exactly a village but if you are calling a village, then it should be urban international village. Place is full of Irish, Italian cafes, Pubs and even Indian restaurants. Good place for teens to spend time.

This is another area where you could spend hours shopping, eating and window shopping. There were some wonderful small boutiques, painting shops, bag shops, kitchen shops and old material shops. Unfortunately due to shortage of times we were unable to spend lots of time in this area. We went to a beautiful café and had yummy unusual cakes and coffee.... More

If the weather is right , its quite an experience to watch the sun go down over and beyond the lake....the jumbos prepare for landing , the ducks swim around with ducklings in tow , the parakeets flying all around , the king fisher hopping from tree to tree , a lone boat waiting for a visitor a sensory overload...

HKV is one of the most surreal places you'll find in Delhi with tons of kitsch shops, boutiques and art stores and lines of dining places and tons of bars and in the middle of it all, a beautiful garden , lake and tomb. A lot of my Sunday evenings were spent here. Though it has become quite the hub... More

An ideal hang out for youngsters. Filled with restaurants, cafés, live music and the lake. Usually filled with couples and college goers.

This place is one of my favourites in the Delhi area. Packed during the day with, off the beaten track, small fashionable shops and turning into a great party area during the evening. The best fashionable restaurants and bars of Delhi are to be found here.

I went there for a dinner and was surprised to see the buzz. The place will remind you of Thailand streets. With music, crowd and offers, this place is all set to make your night awesome.
