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.

Hauz khas village is simply a market of restaurants and a couple of shops. It's a fun place to hangout with friends. One major problem though is the stinking lake which really is due for a clean up. There are some great places to eat and party here at nearly all price points. I would recommend it for friends looking... More

On reaching Hauz Khas, one feels one is away from the hustle and bustle of Delhi. The place has many restaurants serving anything from Chinese to Indian to Nepali food. On seeing the main architectural site overlooking the lake, one can conclude that it has seen better days. It needs immediate attention and restoration. The best time to visit is... More

Hauz Khas today is a pedestrian friendly complex of chic boutiques against the ruins of an ancient fort while. Drop by here in the afternoon and walk through the Hauz Khas tombs tucked away in the heart of the Hauz Khas village, and then enjoy some great Delhi night life with many options in the modern village.

Hauz khas village is a pleasant change from erratic Delhi. It's lined with bars,restaurants and shops and at the end of the road is 13th or so century ruin. The palace/ fort like structure is a good place to take a look around and its free entrance. Pack some food to sit on the lawn and enjoy the architecture. For... More

An absolutely beautiful place hidden away in the middle of Delhi - there are numerous shops and restaurants that sell wonderful crafts and cook delicious meals respectively. The main architectural site overlooking the tank/lake is also worth seeing, and there are plenty of maps and informative signs. You don't have to worry about being harassed by beggars or hawkers either.... More

It's easy to stroll around and there are a number of nice shops and boutiques. It's easy to find a restaurant since there are lot in the area with... More

This market is definitely a must see if you are travelling to Delhi. However, I feel its expensive as compared to some of the other theme markets. This place is easily accessible by Metro, so you should make it once to his place.
