Khandallah is a suburb of Wellingtonmarker, the capital city of New Zealandmarker. It is located four kilometres northeast of the city centre, on hills overlooking Wellington Harbourmarker.

The suburb's name, which means "Resting place of God", comes from a homestead built in the area in 1884 by Captain James Andrew, who had recently returned from duty in Indiamarker. For this reason the suburb and those surrounding it have many place names connected with the Indian subcontinent.

The northeastern part of the suburb is dominated by a large area of parkland, which stretches north towards Johnsonvillemarker. Between then the three parks that make up this reserve land total almost 2 kmĀ² of the slopes of Mount Kaukaumarker. The summit of this 445-metre peak, which is topped by Wellington's main television transmitter tower, provides impressive views of the harbour. Khandallah has a reputation for being one of the most affluent of Wellington's suburbs.

The village of Khandallah is a popular location, in that it holds various facilities, such as a supermarket, a dairy, two pizza locations, two chinese takeaways and a library.

Box Hill was named after a sentry post that was established in 1846.

Khandallah is often seen to be a wealthier suburb, in relation to the surrounding areas.

During the peak development of Khandallah itself, much focus was put into Torwood Road.
