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.

It is an old monument with some history but is mostly a spot for get-together, picnics or lakeside dinner. The place has been maintained well and people throng the place during weekends. The lane upto the monument is full of eateries of varied cuisine and budgets. Overall a good place to spend a weekend but nothing out of ordinary.

A visit to the Hauz Khas village can be quite a mix of emotions for the uninitiated as it wraps many cultures within its short span. The village was a non-descript collection of forgotten monuments before some clothes designers decided to sell their wares out of properties situated next to the monument walls. Soon it became a hub of boutiques,... More

We went there in the afternoon and I guess it was a mistake as it gets dark quite early making the area quite scary. ☺ It's better to go there in the first half of the day to have plenty of time to enjoy the time there. I can say that it's a nice place to spend a calm day... More

During the day Hauz Khas is a place to see a historic moment and shop. At night it's a place to party and eat. It has a very young and somewhat western feel to it.

Hauz Khas is a well-frequented party place for nightlife seekers in Delhi. It is dotted with many multi-cuisine cafes, pubs and restaurants. Hauz Khas pubs are known for their good crowd, happening spirit and great ambiance. Apart from visiting theme based cafes, one can take a warm walk at the Deer park, which is in the middle of the village.

I took a metro to get there. It took about ten minutes walk to reach the village. It is the cleaner part of Delhi. There are many little shops selling all kinds of things.
