‘Yeh hai Dilli Meri Jaan!’ , the perfect blend of everything. One such place personifying its glory is Hauz Khas Village.
Before stepping into the lively streets of this place, we paid darshan at Jagannath temple, a carving dedicated to Lord Jagannath.
From among a variety of cuisines available at some of the best restaurants and lounges of Delhi, we chose to savor different flavors of tea at Chaayos.
The streets of Hauz Khas Village are always buzzing with people, youth being the major constituent of this population. You could shop, dine or just roam around!
The next stop was definitely a delight. An old fort of Delhi highlighting its ancestral veins.Built by Alaudin Khilji in the year 1284, the fort showcases an interesting architecture. The three domed building is T shaped and was known to hold many graves inside it. Following the decline of Tughlaq dynasty, the building was used as a place of residence by the nearby villagers.
The fort overlooks the royal tank,which was used for royal baths during the Tughlaq dynasty. This place is perfect for some relaxation and good photography.
The tomb of Feroz Shah Tughlaq comprised of arcades of rooms. Have a glimpse of its architecture, with carvings embellished in plaster , still visible.
After some window shopping and a look at the local art and craft, we ended our visit with a saunter around the Deer Park. Yes you would spot a deer or two roaming casually in their arenas, offering a treat to the eyes of their visitors!
