Neighborhood: Hauz Khas Village
Known as ‘The National Capital of Ethnic Chic’, the hip and trendy Hauz Khas Village is a beautiful urban village nestled in a corner among the ruins of domed tombs of Muslim royalty from the 14th to 16th centuries, that merge into the modern day Deer Park. Old homes here have been converted into fashion boutiques & chic homestays, art galleries, jewellery shops, book and antique stores, multi-cuisine restaurants, bars and nightclubs. HKV might be full of arterial narrow lanes but it is the epicenter of Delhi’s most vibrant social life. In the spring and winter evenings, visitors can stroll along the lake, watch the beautiful sunset from the ruins of the fort or sip a cocktail at one of the many rooftop bars and restaurants overlooking it.

Mixture of history and natural beauty, must see in Delhi

This is an amazing place with a beautiful lake, ancient historical 13th century fort, plenty of places to walk, a deer Park, lots of greenery, street food sellers and so on.

Hauz khas talk was built by the sultan's of Delhi about 700 years ago. This lake is now maintained by Delhi municipality and converted to a park and complex. The fort is just next to it.

It's located in hauz khas village. Entry to the fort needs an archeological survey ticket rupees 20, park entry is free.

It's a nice place to spend with family and have a nice picnic.

I have been to this place a lot of times, best time to visit is early morning and evening - Delhi's summer we usually avoid day time as it will be a bit hot outside.

People come here for jogging, running, walking as there are proper tracks for these activities.
Some people also do excersize as common park gym machine are there, very well maintained parks for kids and elderly people, bench to sit etc

I find this place amazing for photography as well.

A green lung that’s also historic

The area known as Hauz Khas is named for a medieval water tank that was excavated in this area by the Sultan Alauddin Khalji to provide water for the citizens of his city of Siri. The hauz (‘water tank’) was huge, and later came to be known as the ‘royal tank’, or ‘hauz khas’. In the reign of Firoz Shah Tughlaq, a madrasa (a centre of higher education) was built here by the Sultan, who also had his own tomb constructed as part of the madrasa premises.

The madrasa buildings and Firoz Shah Tughlaq’s tomb are now ticketed monuments, which are approached through a gateway at the end of Hauz Khas Village. The hauz itself, however, is part of the huge Hauz Khas District Park, which stretches not just around the entire hauz but further to the east as well.

The most prominent entrance to the park is from just before Hauz Khas Village, where the ‘Deer Park’ gate is situated. If you go in from here, a series of pathways, with lots of trees, some it overgrown and wild, stretches away along the road, for a good distance. If you want to stay on the more well-trodden paths, though, there are ones which go through lawns and better-maintained stretches. Off to the right is a small enclosure that houses rabbits and hamsters; not far from this are two historical monuments: a large and beautiful medieval tomb known as Bagh-e-Alam ka Gumbad, and (near it) a little domed tomb called Kali Gumti. Near this is a children’s outdoor play area, not very well-maintained or good.

If, when you enter at the gate, you turn left rather than right, you come to the very large deer enclosure, which has a large population of chital (spotted deer) as well as some peafowl and a few monkeys. Beyond the enclosure, a path leads down to the Hauz Khas, the water tank. The path goes all around the tank (which is really large), and with expanses of lawns and gardens stretching out beyond it. One of the major sights here is the medieval ‘Munda Gumbad’ (‘headless tomb’), so called because it was once topped with a dome which has long since collapsed.

Near Munda Gumbad is an outdoor gym. The entire area is generally very good for outdoor exercise, for picnics, and for getting in touch with nature (in peak winter, migratory birds can often be seen at the hauz). Note that you will not be able to go up to the Hauz Khas madrasa and its monuments from here.

Entry to the District Park is free.
