Owner description: 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.

When I chalked out the itinerary of our 23 days long tour to Kumaon , I did not take Hauz Khas Village where medieval and modern India coexisted throwing infinite opportunities for photo sessions , so seriously and ultimately presented myself to Vaijayanti as a complete bafoon when we realized the capacity of the village to impress one and all...

If you need a little break from hectic Dehli, and are a bit of the arty farty type, this place delivers.....modern designers, great replica indian artefacts/ homewares, jewellery, plus some great cafes to relax. Walking around is equally enjoyable.....don't forget the nearby Deer Park

The place is situated in the heart of South Delhi. The location is quite scenic with vintage looks & ruins of Jails. The place has a lot many ultra modern restaurant and it is one good place where you can locate a garden next to it. The crowd is young and cosmopolitan, so one is bound to like it.
