SURAJKUND CRAFTS MELA CONCEPT OF THE THEME STATE

invc,, Surajkund Crafts Mela is being held from 1st to 15th February,2010 at Surajkund, Faridabad. See it and believe it, it is not just a mela, its mini India. The Surajkund Crafts Mela welcomes the whole world to this spontaneous and spectacle celebration of Indian folk and culture. Come February, and all roads leads to the blissful time at the majestic unforgettable aura of Surajkund Crafts Mela.

Surajkund – the complex derives its name from ancient amphitheater, Sun Pool.  It dates to the 10th Century A.D. This was an epoch when tribal Chieftains were gaining supremacy.  One clan that struck out in the chronicles of history, was that of the Tomars.  They were sun worshipers.  Fascinated by the surrounding of this terrain, Raja Suraj Pal, one of the Chieftains, chose to build his stronghold here. A Sun Temple and a Sun Pool were designed.  But times changed, and the clan vanished. The temple fell into disarray.  But, the amphitheater sunpool built as the sun careering westwards, continued to stand as it does even today. It is after this Sun Pool that the complex came to be christened as Surajkund. It has been identified as an ideal suburban retreat because of the natural beauty of the Aravalli ranges.  The open basalt outcrop in one section, cupped a vast water body.  The fact that Surajkund lay close to Delhi in dimension that attracted the Tourism Organization of the State.  It covers 40 hectares. While providing urban attractions for the holiday maker, it retains its suburban serenity.

The Surajkund Crafts Mela started in the year 1987 but the concept of having a particular State/UT of India as a Theme Sate started from the year 1989. Since 1989, one State is projected as Theme State in the Mela. The selected theme state has to construct a commemorative structure/Gate in the mela ground of any historical  building/monument in its state. The replicas of all the Theme States have been set up in Surajkund Mela ground reminding the visitors of the diversity of India and thus converting the Mela ground as ‘Mini India’. A list of the States so far participated as Theme States
