NCR Town of New Delhi- Affordable compared to Delhi

If you are visiting Delhi, during February than you should visit Faridabad for Surajkund fair at Surajkund. If you stay at Faridabad you will find hotels and restaurants more affordable comparable to Delhi. Also you will get taste of Haryana culture. One should visit SurajKund, Baikal Lake (though it has dried up) and Various mall lined up on Mathura Road, which are quite cheaper for shopping compared to Delhi. It is well connected by Bus route, Railways and Metro. Nearest Airport (Delhi) is 45 Kilometers. It is bordertown of Delhi and very easily approachable from south Delhi.

Faridabad Overview

History of Faridabad

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.

People and Culture of Faridabad

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 known. He founded the city in 1607 AD in order to protect the highway which passed through it. He is credited with building the Farid Tomb here. The largest city of Haryana, Faridabad is situated on the plains of the river Yamuna and guarded by the Aravalli Hills on the western and south-western side. It is well connected to the city of Delhi by regular trains and buses. Apart from being the economic hub of Haryana, it also generates its fair share of tourism every year in the month of February during the Suraj Kund Mela.

Things To Do in Faridabad

The Suraj Kund Mela is a crafts fair held near the Suraj Kund Lake and is a platform that showcases the rich collection of arts and crafts items from different states of the country. Faridabad's food scene is as vibrant as its locals. Tourists should try the street food of the city that reflects the city's character. Here, travellers can head to the local market in Sector 5 and have some chilled lassi. Tourists can also head to the Sector 15 market and enjoy chaats like pani puri and aaloo tikki. Also, Faridabad is a major production centre of Henna. Tourists must buy some mehendi powder before heading out of the city. Ghaziabad's proximity to Delhi, the rapid modernisation in recent years and the existing industries make Faridabad one of the most important areas of Haryana, and one of the most developed districts of the state along with Gurgaon.
