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.

This place just transforms in the evening with throngs of youngsters flocking to party at the many happening pubs and restaurants in the vicinity. Some of the hangouts are awesome but this area could definitely be improved for the benefit of walkers. Some good landscaping, sculptures and making it a car free zone would make it comparable to the party... More

slightly more upmarket than the usual Delhi bazaars. Started out as an artists area and some of that still remaisn, but rapidly being taken over by souvenir shops and bars. Trendy and popular amongst Delhi's middle class. Surrounded by park / forest and also the remains / ruins of an ancient madrasa (Islamic school) which adds an excellent second dimension... More

Like many of the historical structures within Delhi, you'd never imagine what's behind the main gate/entrance. The structures are impressive but there is little to no regard to preserving or protecting structures as you watch people climbing all over things. Nice setting above the river and cool little alcoves/rooms to explore. But just too many people lingering/loitering with no regard... More

Hauz khas village is perfect mix of old world rustic charm and modern café's and restobars. A very scenic view of lake and ancient ruins. To add to the beauty is Deer Park adjoining the complex. Overall a good place to spend evening out.

First thing first, I am talking about the historical monuments of Hauz Khas village and the lake created by Alauddin Khilji. The area around the lake has many Tombs, Madrassas and Chhatris created mostly by Firoze Shah Tughlaq. Barring a few strange pre-wedding shooters you will probably not be disturbed by anyone else, so walk around in the greens and... More

This place is famous among college going students and it is famous for night life. I visited this place in day time. There is nothing much to do there. There is one deer park with no deer. Ruin historical building. Some good expensive restaurant.
