Surajkund International Crafts Mela
When : 1st February to 14th February, 2014
Location : Delhi
Surajkund is an ancient reservoir of the 10th century, literally meaning 'Lake of the Sun', is an artificial Kund (lake or reservoir) built in the backdrop of the Aravalli hills. In the backdrop of the lake, during the spring season, a colorful traditional craft festival of India is held. Traditional artists, painters, weavers and sculptors from all parts of the country participate in this annual celebration. The theme normally is specific to a state of India and this is depicted at the entrance to the Mela grounds. This provides an ambience of that particular state with characteristic colors, materials, architecture, furniture and decorations. Surajkund Mela is located at a distance of 8 km from South Delhi in Faridabad. As like all the Melas in India a food festival covering some of the popular cuisines from different parts of the country are available. Entertainment in the form of famous rhythms, dances and folk theatres of India are also showcased during the festival.
