About
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.

The area
Neighbourhood: 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.

Another nice old place in New Delhi worth to visit. even it is little small, i mean old complex itself, go there. and combine it with nearby park. Btw it is very first place here where i could see restaurants and bars in entrance to complex. And i like indian standard: entrance fee 300 for foreigners and 25 for locals. if u drive your car parking place is not far, cost me 80 for cca 2hrs.

Hauz Khas "village" is a collection of a few houses overlooking a park with a lake. You can walk in the park as well. The "village" is mainly a collection of bars, some art galleries', and some clothes shops. Nice to hand around for an hour or so (plus an hour in the park) and have a drink. It is also a bit different from the rest of Delhi.

Why does the goverment makes it so much more expensive for foreigner, locals should pay 20rupies foreigner 250 rupies. Thats pretty unfair it's a lot of goverment stiff which makes it with purpose a lot more expensive. Make prices for everybody the same, just because we're foreigner it doesnt mean that we swim in money !!

We went to a cute little rooftop cafe close to the entry with a beautiful view over the lake I can really recommend that for sunset .

First time visitor to India it has been recommended by fellow travellers, guides and friends to visit Hauz Khas Village a historic park with reservoirs and a lot of history. A place for tourists and people of India to visit. Only wished I had more time to visit.

Hint : a little gem with unexpected surprises. Warm clothes (December), camera, selfie stick and good footwear - enjoy

The Hauz Khas Village aka HKV in South Delhi is an urban hangout hotspot as well as a heritage place . As surprising as it might sound, it is a posh neighborhood, a historical complex, and an upscale hub, all rolled into one. While Hauz Khas keeps its buoyant vibes with a wide range of modern restaurants, pubs, cafés, shopping places, and boutiques, it also retains its old-world charm through the historical complex that houses many structures from the Sultanate era. And this smooth merger of the past and the present makes it one of the top tourist attractions in Delhi. eating and drinking are Very expensive in this district, however the unique parklands with deer, heritage buildings and fantastic range of restaurants, make it a worthwhile adventure. Come for a day & stay for the evening night life !
