Have you people been to Deer park, Hauzkhas? It's a small but beautiful park. Do visit it if you happen to visit New Delhi.

I never miss it when I'm in Delhi. I usually stay near IIT, and it makes for a nice walk. I especially like the "Duck Pull".

I always make a visit .... but have yet to see one deer ... or even a chital ...... or sambar. What is the history of Deer Parks? There seems to be one in every major center of the western world ... was it a moniker used to appease homesick brits or is there more significance to the name?

I was there couple years back in April GP. Park's fine and the deer are healthy and fed by passers-by who enjoy the unique experience. I've got a few photos somewhere too.

It's right by the ruins and directly accessible from opposite the HKV car park. Lots of monkeys scampering about near the lake too, so be careful.

Last visited in February. It is a little peaceful place in the shithouse that is Delhi (or any big city). You can access it from either side- Safdarjung or HK/Green Park.

I love to hang around and watch the deer early morning. Have a lot of pics somewhere, maybe later.


Edit: (it was cold and misty)

Parking is a nightmare on the village side, specially on weekends, specially when the weather's good. Either take a taxi or auto there, or approach through the Hauz Khas District Park (Africa Avenue) and up the steps at the far end into the village, or the Safdarjang Enclave side. It's a bit easier to park at the latter two sides.

Shukriya, I know the area now. But, I failed to explore it. Odd how I lived in that area long ago and failed to spend time exploring it. Usually I was taking a long bus trip to North Delhi, DU, etc..
