I very recently visited the Surajkund fair in Faridabad, Haryana. It is the best place to find the handlooms, handicrafts and flavor of some mouth-watering Indian cuisines.
Every year this fair held in the month of Feb from 1st to 15th Feb. But In this year, it began from 2nd Feb to 18th Feb. Although the Surajkund mela is pretty far from my place, travelling to the fair is very easy. Just drop down at the Tughlakabad metro station and then take an auto or e-rickshaw to the fair ground.
Theme of Surajkund Mela
The theme for Surajkund mela 2018 is Uttar Pradesh. There are 20 countries and all Indian states are participating in the fair.
Ticket price of Surajkund fair
The ticket price for this fair on weekdays is 120 per person and for weekends its 180 per person.
I paired a purple top with low-waist pants and layered it with a jacket. I have used sunglasses, shoes and purple backpack to complete my look.
On reaching the fair, my first attention went to the large gathering so I went there and that was a stage where artists showcase their culture and traditions by performing their folk dances.
After enjoying the cultural performance , I went further in the mela ground. I passed through various shops of jewellery, wood carved crafts, mirror work, metal work, pottery, paintings, clothing stonework, embroidery and crafts. You can find numerous of products in a single place. The variety factor is definitely a wow factor.
If your choice is not shopping, you can enjoy folk dances in open-air chaupal, musical evenings and much more. Inside the fair, folk artists performing at different places and at every place people were enjoying their performances.
While walking in the lanes of mela, I reached to food court and I can felt my hunger for delicious food. The choices of food in mela were endless. From Punjabi food to Rajasthani food and from momos to chuski , there were everything.
For or all of you living in Delhi, it’s one place you should definitely visit to get the flavor of India. I had a great time. A day of fun, shopping at one go. I just enjoyed the entire day.
