Delhi is a fine blend of heritage and modernity. It is a melting point of cultures, crafts and lifestyles. May be no other place is Delhi can exemplify this better that the Haus Khas Village. Located in the heart of South Delhi is Hauz Khas, an ancient complex dating back to the 13th century. The complex which is home to the ruins of an ancient Islamic seminary, a mosque and a tomb, is surrounded by urban civilizations. The Hauz Khas or the ‘Royal Tank’ is a large water reservoir, said to be built by Allauddin Khilji to supply water to the town of Siri. The most important structure at Hauz Khas is the domed tomb of Firoz Shah, the third ruler of the Tughlaq Dynasty.
At the entrance of the complex is a beautifully landscaped lush green park with peacocks, spotted deers, rabbits, guinea pigs and a wide variety of birds. The complex also houses the ‘Eco Night Bazar’ – India’s first night bazaar where you can pick up seeds of rare plants, handicrafts and also attend cultural programs. There are several restaurants within the Hauz Khas Complex.
