Surajkund is the annual fair to find the finest handlooms, handicrafts, authentic fragrances and flavours of the Indian cuisines.This photographic blog is about our trip to Surajkund Fair this year. The Surajkund Crafts Fair held annually at Surajkund in Haryana in the month of February. There is nothing new this year, except the change of theme state and a paid helicopter ride offering the aerial view of the fair that costs Rs. 2000 per person. This year tickets can be book online at Haryana Tourism website: Online E-Tickets for Surajkund Annual Fair, 2012

The more details of Surajkund Annual Crafts Fair is available on my previous year journey blog about the same at:
