Khooni Khan Jheel

Distinctive Features-  Khooni Khan Lake  is located deep within the North Delhi Ridge that now resembles a deserted garden overgrown with wild trees, bushes and cacti. It is also infested with monkeys and feral cats but has a paved  road  running all through it, with park benches placed along the road and at clever bends inside lighting, the water turned red from the blood of the wounded, thus earning it the name of Khooni Khan Lake.

The lake is now green and is barricaded by thick and sharp wires. The resident monkeys have made it their personal swimming pool, using the overhanging branches of trees as the diving board.
