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.

“Great Delhi Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 March 2012

I love art galleries, and Hauz Khas VIllage is the THE place in Delhi for contemporary art. It's very small - you can see everything in an hour, but hang out, eat, shop and admire the art. I loved it. (By the way, this is nowhere near the Hauz Khas Metro stop. Take a taxi.)

“Pleasant escape”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 February 2012

Quirky little village full of cafes, bookshops and boutiques adjacent to the atmospheric Haus Khas ruins. I spent hours drinking pots of assam and mint tea at Elma's Tea Room, which was gorgeous.
