Suraj Kund


On the outskirts of Delhi, this is a very famous picnic spot with a serene lake resort in between. Historically it came into prominence when the Jat ruler Surajmal Jat camped with his army to attack Delhi in the eighteenth century.

Tomar Raj Surajpal dug up this Kund in 11th century in order to meet the water shortage in southwest Delhi. Today, there is no water in the Kund but the temple of Sun God still exists there.
