That Medley Called Delhi – II

Following the earlier post That Medley Called Delhi – I , here is capturing my favorite nature – spot that comes across as an oasis amidst the city ; ‘Hauz Khas Lake’. It is a huge water-tank replete with greenery all around, reflections and a plethora of avian visitors during winter months.

In addition to the natural beauty and unadulterated calm, one also gets a glimpse into the royalty of  Delhi Sultanate era of 14th-16th centuries. There are beautiful pavilions, tombs (most notable being Feroz Shah Tuqluq’s), madarsa and floral gardens dotting the landscape, making this complex a sweet spot for both nature-lovers and history-seekers.

The complex is also a haven for youngsters who love biding time post their visit to the next-door, hugely popular and lively Hauz Khas Village .

      1. Aww, thank you so much, Aishwarya. Tbh, I’ve some plans. But, for starters, I’m wondering to get some of my poetry pieces published, and see the reactions of my reading audience. But, the thing is, Idk where to begin.
