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.

  1. I am quite familiar with this place… half of my college life being in these premises. 😛

    For an interesting fact i also once saw an eagle-snake fight out here… had my share of adventures at this castle, skewing in and out through confined places…

    Nice clicks!!

    Cheers!

  6. Most of the time we ignore the beauty of our own city where we live, and go to other places seeking enjoyment of visiting beautiful places. Good to know that you enjoyed a beautiful day in your own city, and also thanks for taking us around through your beautiful pictures.
