“Experience: the place has so much to offer. Dirty broken roads, unclean air, unruly traffic, congested 'old' city and a two malls worth new city.
Food, sight-seeing and shopping: There are two malls, SRS and Crown Plaza. Site-see them or shop; eat there or watch movies, the choice is yours. SRS, however, is very attractively built. Parking is free and ample. Away from the main city, Surajkund is a good bet but mostly during the annual crafts mela. It might be a good idea to visit Badhkal lake, considering there isn't much else to see anyway. Cricket fans could check out the Nahar Singh stadium.
Activities & things to do: The 'Town Park' (as its called) offers run-of-the-mill rides and a couple of eateries. 'Fun n food village' on Mathura road might be a respite. Faridabad is enroute Agra and Mathura from Delhi, so you find 'Haldirams', 'Nirulas' and 'Mc Donalds' on the Mathura road.
Travel tips, How to reach, travel warnings etc: The city adjoins Delhi. Located on the Delhi-Mathura highway. This place is not for those allergic to dust and industrial pollutants. Electricity is a big big problem. So if you have babies, please have mercy on them as the city will not.”

Faridabad, one of the industrial hubs of Haryana, lies to the south of the Indian capital, New Delhi and to the east of the cosmopolitan hub, Gurgaon. Together with Gurgaon, it accounts for 50% of Haryana’s total income tax. The history of Faridabad as an industrial town goes back to the days of the Partition. An industrial development was started here by the government in 1950 to support the refugees who came from Pakistan. Today, the city is responsible for a wide range of industrial products such as refrigerators, tractors, shoes, switch gears, etc. But Faridabad is not about industries alone. It has its share of tourist attractions in the form of Badhkal Lake, Baba Farid Tomb and Raja Nahar Singh Palace. Faridabad derives its name from Sheikh Farid, or Baba Farid as he is popularly...
