Formerly famous as Hauz-e-Alai, Hauz Khas Village happens to be the historical
site that emphasizes the victory of Ghazi Malik, Dipalpur Governor. It was
designed by Alauddin Khilji to provide water to the people residing in Siri
Fort. The place gets its name from the huge water reservoir ‘Hauz Khas’.
The site dates back to an ancient era when the South Delhi
did not exist. Hauz Khas, which once happened to be the simple and village-like
area, started turning into a modernized society in the mid-1980s. A decade
later, people started building restaurants and modernized pubs and bars in the
area (transforming the village into a modernized place). Tourists schedule a
