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.

Reviewed February 12, 2014

Unlike most of the Rajasthan, there was an ability to stay at a hotel and walk around and have dinner and shop. The lake was a lovely and peaceful sight

“One of my favorites in Delhi”
Reviewed February 9, 2014

Am in love with this place, it is vibrant and a very fun place to be. It is beautiful and you have so many options to Eat and drink. The crowd is varied but mostly very good and you can easily spend your entire day here, either taking photos or reading a book by yourself or getting drunk with friends! It is perfect for every occasion!

“Groovy little enclave with interesting ruins.”
Reviewed February 6, 2014

There is a boom gate blocking traffic so your taxi will need to drop you off there, but it's a small village and you can easily walk around the groovy shops and restaurants.

the highlight is the park and ruins at the end on the shore of a large lake/tank...who knew that was hiding at the end of the street!

We walked around the ancient buildings at dusk with lots of loving couples and lots of architecture students who were measuring various aspects of the fort-like structure. It is absolutely picturesque, and completely uncrowded and pleasant.

We went up to the Italian rooftop bar overlooking the park and ruins, and had beer and pizza. The food and view were stunning ( although a bit pricey for India at $10 per personal pizza).
