Hey guys! I have been recently to the Surajkund International Crafts Mela and here sharing my experience of the same. It is one of the best places to experience the unique diversity of Indian traditions and culture in a superb rural and desi ambience. It showcases some of the most exquisite handicrafts and handlooms of India and some neighbouring countries.

If one is looking for  a lot of fun, frolic, entertainment and exclusive shopping experience in India then Surajkund International Crafts Mela is the place for him/her. Sri Lanka was chosen as the partner nation and Goa the Theme state this year. Every state of India showcased its mind-blowing handicrafts and mouth-watering delicacies in the Surajkund International Crafts Mela 2014.  Apart from this there was Amusement Zone with playful rides and swings and beautiful Folk Dances. You just cant resist the temptation to tap your feet with the beats of enthralling folk dancers.
Spread in a very large area it makes up for an awesome day out with friends or family. Adjoining it is an ancient reservoir of the 10th century. Surajkund in hindi means  Lake of the Sun.
So here am sharing with you some of the awesome moments of my trip to Surajkund International Crafts Mela.
