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.

“A glimpse of historical India”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2015 NEW

Known for the historical feel, Hauz Khas village has a large number of historical monuments and buildings. The major attraction of this place is the Hauz Khas monument and tombs. The village is also famous for the authentic north Indian restaurants and nightlife. This is one of the weekend gateways for the youth of Delhi.

“Trendy and unusual”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2015 NEW

I loved this trendy and unusual shopping/restaurant area. Some stunning shops with clothing and jewellery and awesome restaurants. Doesn't feel like Delhi, feels more like Cape Town!

“Very beautiful monument surrounded by interesting shops”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2015 NEW

Great place the visit. The monument is free and very beautiful and interesting. Its free but only open during daylight. Check out the resident bats in some of the alcoves. The nearby shops are eclectic and not those you see elsewhere.

“Awesome place !!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2015 NEW

Hauz khas is one place to visit with your friends or your partner.
It is situated in south delhi, there is a lake surrounded by a fort where you will find many people.
Just outside the fort there are many eateries an coffee place and restaurant.
Basically hauz khas is very much famous for it eateries but do take care that they are on an expensive side.
