Enjoy the serene surroundings and beauty of Surajkund which makes for a popular picnic spot for northerners. Contrary to the popular belief, the adjacent Surajkund lake is a man-made reservoir built in the pre-Sultanate days by the Rajput King Surajpal believed to date as far back as the 10th century! In addition to exploring the area, you can have a closer look into the life of the local community.
Surajkund got its name after a famous sun temple, which is said to stand here once but some historians also claim that it was named after the King himself. The tank is on a semi-circular pattern and has steps that lead to the water and the reservoir is kept pretty full during rainy seasons. Feroze Shah Tughlaq even repaired its embankments in the 14th century!
This place is not only visited by the locals but is very popular among the foreign backpackers too. Should you visit in February, Surajkund is completely transformed into a colorful paradise of arts, crafts and treats and becomes a wonderful site for the major crafts festival held annually. Though people visit Surajkund just for the daytime but an overnight stay in any of the guesthouse is a good idea to escape from the crowd.
