Surajkund is located in Faridabad, Haryana which is 8kms in distance from South Delhi. The name surajkund is derived from the fact that it is an artificial kund or reservoir which is built on the Aravalli hills in semi-circular form.

The word “Surajkund” literally means “Lake of the Sun” on the name of an artificial lake which is constructed in Aravalli hills. Every year the Mela is organised based on a theme.
