Going to Hauz Khas village was one of the things I was really looking forward to on my Delhi trip. Luckily it wasn’t far from Apartment 18. I was definitely more interested in Hauz Khas village, for all the cutesy & quirky cafés & shops, but the rickshaw guy dropped us right near the entrance of Deer Park so we decided to take a stroll there.
The entry is free, just when you enter the gate you see a sign pointing to the lake with ducks (the lake is actually the revived Hauz Khas royal tank, dating back to the Mughal period) & a little forward the sign pointing to the deer park. All of the signs are in Hindi, so even I took a little time to read them. The park is very green & pretty clean too. The pathways are well paved & nice to walk on.
Many people go there to jog, but we also saw some suspicious looking couples & suspicious looking groups of men, & so keeping in mind that it’s Delhi & we were just two women (dad stayed home that day) we avoided the very lonely looking paths.
In my next posts you’ll see some lovely places I visited in Hauz Khas village.
