Where Gods Reside

Saket comes from the Sanskrit word Saketa which means where Gods reside! This neighborhood is named after the city of Ayodhya, which was also known as Saket because you know, Ram. Saket is primarily an upmarket residential colony located in the South of Delhi.

    I was a migrant for studies, lived there in a PG for 3 years. I'm an Arsenal fan, enjoy playing football & reading about Greek mythology. Saket's got a fully-functional sports complex nearby. All forms of commute are readily available & it's ambiance is quite good. Other facilities are also top notch. DLF mall & Select City walk feature a large number of places where one can get a range of eatables & therefore are the most preferred hangouts. For the cost-conscious, the Saket laza is also a viable option. The only drawback is that the nearby roads can get too crowded at times. It's quite far to the South of Delhi so accessing other parts takes up a lot of time.

    Saket is the land of 3Ms - Movie, Munching and Margheritas! There are three famous malls here, adjacent to each other, namely Select city walk, MGF and DLF place. There's also PVR Anupam and a community center. Almost all brands, food chains, and movies are available at any given time. I have been living here for the past 1 year as I joined my new office on Lodhi Road. I'm Senior Programme Officer - TRAFFIC , World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF India). Saket lies on the yellow line of the metro, which is the best place to be if you are travelling to Gurgaon. Auto rickshaw and cabs are available round the clock. It faces parking issues, honking, drunk crowd - same as in most of Delhi.

    I'm a freelance photographer who's been residing here since the past 2 years. Transportation facility in the area is awesome. It is well connected to Delhi and Gurgaon via metro. To hangout various malls, Bikaner, AlBake and PVR Saket are available. The area has reasonable price shops and malls too, but it is a bit crowded.

    Utility and general stores are available in abundance. Public transport makes commute very easy. Parks and streets are well kept. Security is a factor that can be improved. Recreational spots are low in number. The noise level due to the traffic is very high around the area.

    I'm working for a Garment Export house TCNS and have been living here for past three years. I like travelling and reading. The location is super cool because of the easy access to Metro and the best hangout place Citywalk topped it up with the spicy food joints of PVR complex. PVR Saket is very known place for all famous good joints. Also, we have Select City Walk mall at few minutes distance. Commute facilities are great. The high profile people make the area sad and strict loosing on the real and simple fun of life. It's a place with fun, food and safety.

    I'm pursuing MBA from FORE School of Management and have been living here since last 20 years. I enjoy playing harmonium and watching cricket. I like the peace, calmness and the facilities in the place. We have the metro, buses, auto rickshaws as commute options. You can hang out at PVR and DLF Place. The place is a bit crowded and there are parking issues at times. Heal the world!

In & Around

Chains like McDonald’s, Domino’s, Subway, CCD or Polo Tropical, to name a few, are found in plenty all over Saket – whether it’s in the many malls or the PVR Complex or the J-Block Market. J-Block market is a relatively local area and popular sweet shops and bakeries line up the area. There are several restaurants and pubs spread over Saket.

Saket, New Delhi

Umm, well, I've been living here for about 5 years now. I came to Delhi for schooling and now I've almost finished grad school. I am pursuing B.Com (H) from Delhi College of Arts and Commerce. In my free time, I like to visit new hangout places and food outlets. When I'm home, I mostly read, watch my favourite TV series, or sleep!

Saket is one of the places to be in South Delhi. It has malls, PVRs, amazing hangout spots and everything you could want rolled into one. The people are also very cool over here. The connectivity to other parts of the city is great as there is a metro station nearby and also buses and autos are available very easily. Traffic is a huge problem here and getting a spot to park is even more tougher.

I've been living here for the past 3 years it's quiet and peaceful which is something I love about the area. The dumping zone nearby however is something I dislike. Hangouts are cool in pvr saket anupam market that's close by and parking is good. Autos are always available for commute purposes.

I'm a homemaker and have been living in Neb Sarai, Saket for the past 2 years. I enjoy cooking and watching reality shows. It's cheap and you get big house for lesser price. Access road is always jammed. The transit facilities are pathetic. Dhabhas and tea stalls are there. It's an okay place for bachelors who can waste 20 minutes just to hit the main road and for people who are not so rich. It's a cheap but messy place.
