Why Hauz Khas?

Hauz Khas is an affluent neighbourhood in South Delhi, its heart being the historic Hauz Khas Complex. It is centrally located and offers both rural (Hauz Khas Village) and urban (Hauz Khas Enclave, Market) environments. Its also known as mehak ka chota quila.

Hauz Khas is surrounded by Green Park, SDA (Sri Aurobindo Marg) to the west, Gulmohar Park (Balbir Saxena Marg) towards the north, Sarvapriya Vihar (Outer Ring Road) towards the south and Asiad Village (August Kranti Marg and Siri Fort) to the east.

Hauz Khas is also home to various diplomatic missions such as the ones of Albania, Iraq, Guinea Bissau, Burundi and Macedonia. Some well-known people like cricketer Virender Sehwag live here.

Hauz Khas is named after an ancient water reservoir by the same name, now part of the extensive Hauz Khas Complex. In Urdu language, 'Hauz’ means “water tank” (or lake) and ‘Khas’ means “royal”, giving it the meaning — the “Royal tank”. The large water tank or reservoir was first built by Allauddin Khalji (r. 1296–1316) (the plaque displayed at the site records this fact) to supply water to the inhabitants of Siri Fort.

Hauz Khas village is a historic habitation around the region of the Hauz Khas Complex, dating to much before establishment of South Delhi city. It existed as an urban village at the edge of larger Hauz Khas area, developed by DLF after the 1960s. The village area started getting modernized in mid-1980s when designer boutiques of fashion designer like Bina Ramani, started moving in. Then, in the late 1990s restaurants started coming up in the area, today it has around 50 restaurants, bars, pubs and cafes
