Surajkund has a kund (pool) with hills around it. The pool originally had a sun temple by its side. The temple is now in ruins but the kund still stands. All of this was built in the 10th century A.D. by the Tomar rular Suraj Pal. Surajkund is a picnic spot. Surajkund is as comfortable a weekend getaway, with opportunities to relax in any one of a whole range of hotels, designed to suit a whole range of pockets.


Surajkund became the chosen venue of the annual Crafts fair, a mega event that churns up wave after wave of visitors from the almost every state of the country. The fair is shaped around a different theme every year.


The fair is held in the first half of February when the air at Surajkund is at its balmiest. As they say, the Surajkund Crafts Fair is a celebration of India's finest handlooms and handicrafts, ranging from wickerwork baskets and mats to silk saris, shawls, carpets and much, much more besides. Nothing on display is machine made. It is handwork all the way. While giving a new lease of life to crafts that have been languishing, fair revives the glorious Indian tradition of respecting craftsmen and extending to them the patronage they so richly deserved.

Nahar Singh Palace


The historic fort of the King Nahar Singh is located at Ballabhgarh. Now in ruins, it was around 1739 AD, that the work on the construction of the Fort of Ballabhgarh began at the behest of the forefathers of King Nahar Singh. Once guarded by two gates, the four corners of the palace were decorated with minarets on which large cannons were mounted.


The fort had a Darbar-E-Aam and a Rang Mahal, which were decorated with a beautiful Chhatri visible even today. The fort stands as an outstanding specimen of architectural design. In pattern, the Mahal is in keeping with the finesse of the Mahals of Bharatpur.


King Nahar Singh ascended the throne in 1829 AD and proved to be a just ruler. In the year 1857 AD, when the fires of the First War of Independence were flaring up in the country, he joined the battle. Backed by a small army of soldiers, he fought valiantly, following the 'guerrilla' tactics popular in those days. But the small efforts of the King could not withstand the mighty forces of the British. He eventually died, while doing his bit to free his motherland and thus, came the end of the rulers of Ballabhgarh.




Dabchick, at Hodal, is a lovely wooded retreat having a small lake and freely roaming peacocks and ducks. This green and winsome tourist resort covers 25 acres.

What began as a resort for a brief stopover is now providing a well-decorated motel wing, luxury cottages on stilts, restaurant, and conference hall and bar facilities along with a Fast Food Centre, filling station, gift shops and animals for joy rides.
