HAUZ KHAS
 

About Hauz Khas
Hauz Khas is the historical battleground where Timur defeated Mohammed Shah Tughlaq in 1398. One can find the remnants of an ancient college and Feroz Shah�s tomb here and on the east to a short distance the Moth ki Masjid �built in the finest Lodi style. Once an archetypal North Indian Village in the heart of Delhi�s urban sprawl, Hauz Khas is now a shopper�s paradise successfully marketing the concept of �ethnicity� in every possible way. There are boutiques selling furniture, clothes, jewelry and art along with a smattering of restaurants that serve a variety of �authentic� cuisine. One wanders down a quaint narrow alley experiencing all these ending up in a surprisingly well-kept sprawling monument. Hauz Khas was a large reservoir built by Allauddin Khilji that was once the water catchments for the city. This village is remarkable for both the ancient and charming ruins in the nearby compound looking down on a still, green tank, as well as for the modern and posh shopping complex, which has sprung up around here. The madarsa, tombs and mosque around it built by Feroz Shah Tuglaq still make for an exclusive and exciting experience

History

Alauddin Khilji(1296-1316) excavated a large tank here for the use of the inhabitants of Siri. Hauz Khas is the second city of medieval Delhi. It was originally known as Hauz-i-Alai after Khilji. Firuz Shah Tughlaq (1351-88) re-excavated the silted tank and raised several buildings on its southern and eastern banks which are known as Hauz-Khas or royal tank. the enclosure wall is partly modern.

A building of historical importance within this enclosure is the tomb of Firuz Shah Tughlaq, which was repaired during the reign of Sikandar Lodhi in 1507 AD, as is evidenced from an inscription on the entrance. The multi-storeyed wings consisting of series of halls and chambers on the north and west of Firuz Shah's Tomb were built by him in about 1354 AD. to serve as a madrasa or college for theological training. Staircases lead down to the tank from the upper storey of the madrasa. At the northern extremity of the enclosure is a small mosque. One of the old entrances to the enclosure is from the west, now closed. The octagonal and square chhatris standing here were built as tombs over the graves possibly of teachers attached to the madrasa.

Taimur, who invaded Delhi in 1399, was highly impressed by the tank and buildings around it, but wrongly ascribed its construction to Firuz Shah Tughlaq. (Source: Archaeological Survey of India)
