Suraj Kund: Faridabad

Suraj Kund: Faridabad



Literally meaning the Lake of the Sun, Surajkund located in Faridabad about 8 km from South Delhi is a Roman amphitheatre-like water tank. This ancient structure is believed to have been built by the Tomar Kind, Surajpal, a sun worshipper in the 10th Century. Resembling a rising sun, the reservoir consists of a semi-circular stepped stone embankment to hold rainwater. The structures complex also includes a beautiful garden and a pool called Siddha Kund which is a pool of fresh water oozing out of rock crevices. The site has become famous in the current time thanks to the famed annual Surajkund International Crafts Mela. Firuz Shah Tughlaq (1351-88) took a keen interest in irrigation works and therefore repaired the steps and terraces in the complex by laying lime-concrete.
