I have lived in Delhi all my life, though many times I have been close to changing cities(due to studies, job and marriage)…destiny probably wills that I live in this city and I have grown to love it!!!
I have my own favorite spots in the city to hang out, many places which i have been chronicling in this blog through “My favourite Places in Delhi” series. (click here and here to read)
And then there are places, which I keep rediscovering, which have very vague memories for me, having visited during childhood, which I nevertheless like…
One such place is Hauz Khas, which is a fine example of delhi’s rich heritage. The Hauz Khas Complex houses a water tank, an Islamic seminary, a mosque, a tomb and pavilions built around an urbanized village with medieval history traced to the 13th century of Delhi Sultanate reign. I have been there only once before, in my childhood, I guess when I was 11 or 12 years old on a picnic organized by our school and though I have passed by it many times, never got around to visit it since!!!
One lovely cloudy sunday evening, I decided to join a group of walkers on a heritage walk through Hauz Khas. It was a lovely time spent amongst an eclectic bunch of people experiencing the beautiful hauz khas and listening to its interesting history from the walk guide, who was also a PG history student.
I am sharing some pics of the lovely place and evening with you here.
