Hauz Khas is an upscaled suburb in South Delhi, which houses the reminiscences of the bygone years and opens a platform for the modern trends to swap in.
On the one hand the meandering pathways are dotted by historical stone monuments like that of the tomb of Firoz Shah Tuglaq, who ruled the state in the 14th century. On the other hand, there are posh shops displaying designer ensembles in clothes and jewelery. Some of the other shops that can be found house some of the most precious antiques.

Etymologically, Hauz Khas means the 'royal tank', named after the artificial lake that had been constructed by Allauddin Khilji. This lake was meant to be the reservoir for water supply for his nearby fort called Siri. The village of Hauz Khas has become a tourist hub for its historical significance, especially with the tombs of the 14th to the 16th century minor royalties.

One can also take a plunge into the local flavor and aroma in the Hauz Khas restaurants. Some of most sought after restaurants in the region are Park Balluchi, which is situated in the deer park Naivedyam, which is also popular as the Village Bistro.

A sojourn into Hauz Khas provide an insinuation into the cultural heritage of Delhi.
