Faridabad Tourism & Travel Guide

Drive 25kms south of Delhi and you will arrive where the famous Indian singer Sonu Nigam hails from – Faridabad. It is shielded by the Aravalli on the west and southwest while river Yamuna flows on its east and is easily accessible from all other parts of the NCR. It is one of the most developed areas of Haryana. But it is not only about industries alone. One can visit the Suraj Kund Lake as an alternative to the Badkhal Lake, which is a man-made reservoir and has now dried up. The Suraj Kund Lake on the other hand is a great place for lovers of nature. The lake amidst the greenery also offers boat rides and picnic spots. The Sultanpur Bird Sanctuary is a great place if one wants to indulge in bird watching. If you are visiting during January or February, don’t miss the annual handicraft fair at Suraj Kund. A huge collection of exquisite arts and crafts from various parts of the country are brought in. The Shiva Temple at Sainik colony is notable for the 22ft high shivling. And if the weather gets too hot, a tall glass of chilled lassi will always be there for the rescue.

Weekend Getaways from Faridabad 

Best time to visit - January,February,March,October,November,December
Rajasthan’s opulent capital is a magical land brimming with desert camps and lakeside palaces. Sitting on the edge of the Thar desert and surrounded by the Aravali hills, the Pink City boasts of hilltop forts, bustling bazaars and the best pyaaz kachoris you’ll ever taste. Among the places to visit in Jaipur, the grandiose pink sandstone Palace of Winds, or Hawa Mahal, towering over the hustling streetscapes and the majestic City Palace are the ones attracting the most tourists. The 18th century old astronomical observatory of Jantar Mantar in Jaipur is a UNESCO world heritage site and a major tourist attraction. Perched proudly on the top of a hill is Amber Fort, dating back to the 16th century. The red sandstone structure houses palaces, temples, gardens and a lake inside its premises. One of the most favoured things to do in Jaipur is to walk through the lively Bapu Bazaar, and come out with bags stocked with bandhani-printed sarees, lac bangles, meenakari trinkets and blue pottery. And while you’re at it, shop for some string puppets or kathputlis that make for some excellent souvenirs. Galtaji temple, also called the Monkey Temple, is another must visit. If your eyes just can't get enough, visit Amber Fort, which has its own 600-year-old story to narrate, through its spectacular light and sound shows, cultural performances and folk music. Rajasthani tailored clothes, jewellery and handicrafts are a huge hit as souvenirs, for their exquisite mirror work, embroidery, leather and splashes of colour. Some famous places this illustrious workmanship can be bought from are Rajasthali, Anokhi, Johari bazaar and Sireh Deori Bazaar, but remember to bargain. Central Museum and Albert Hall museum are great places to learn about Rajasthan's rich history and culture and also to buy handicrafts. The Jaipur Literature Festival, the world's largest free literature festival, is dear to almost every bibliophile around the globe. Here, enjoy literature and music, amidst the likes of William Dalrymple, Stephen Fry and many other renowned writers and personalities. The 5-day festival is hosted in Diggi Palace, which gives people around the world an insight into Rajasthan's captivating cultural heritage. For those interested in pampering their palates with the flavourful Rajasthani cuisine against the backdrop of a picturesque village should visit Chokhni Dani. For a regal experience, a stay at the Suvarna Mahal is a must visit.
