Suraj Kund

The Surajkund village gets its name from the famous artificial lake Surajkund, which means the 'Lake of the Sun'. It is an ancient reservoir built around the 10th century. The ruins of an ancient Sun Temple around the water reservoir substantiate its name. It is situated approximately 8 kilometers away from South Delhi. The village and the lake built in the backdrop of the Aravalli, are an amazing weekend getaway for travelers in search of a peaceful respite from the scorching summer heat. A semicircular amphitheater like embankment surrounds the main pool or the Siddha Kund. The complex is surrounded by green, manicured gardens. The region is often praised for its unique architecture and tranquil settings. A cave like-structure was built near the temple. Archaeological excavations revealed carved stones near the site that were used for repair work. Every year, in the first half of February, the locals host Surajkund Fair that promotes Indian traditions, folk art, handlooms and handicrafts. Visitors may find an extensive range of ethnic items ranging from hand-woven furnishings, embroidered fabrics, jewelry, terracotta artefacts, metal-ware, cane-ware etc. The fair opens with musical evenings, folk dance and stage shows.
