Take a heritage walk in Hauz Khas village

Visitors to Delhi won’t have any idea about the existence of Hauz Khas village and the historic 14th and 15th century buildings that dot the place unless they live in South Delhi.  Go here one evening and you’ll see students and musicians sprawled across the building’s crumbling balconies and walkways, locals strolling around the man-made water tank and pigeons roosting in every nook and cranny of these ancient protected ruins.  Drop in for chai or coffee at one of the charming cafes in the village, after your walk.  I was lucky that I lived just across Deer Park in Safdarjung Enclave and got the chance to pop into this lovely space quite often.
