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 .
