Surajkund which is located in Haryana is just an hour's drive from New Delhi. Surajkund comes alive for two weeks with the rhythm and beats of folk dances, lots of shopping opportunity and a riot of colors each year in early Feb. This year the Surajkund Mela was open from February 1-15 and the theme state was Madhya Pradesh.
