One of my friends asked me if we were interested. I said yes and we just went and really enjoyed the day.
My wife thoroughly enjoyed and could shop many handcraft house hold decorative things.
I took some colourful pictures.
Wooden carvings, from Tunisia. Lots of items, quite expensive, claimed that they are made of Olive tree.
Another wood carving of a Hindu goddess, below is the another Ganesh idol in laid back posture.
What a mesmerising Radha Krishna Idol, made of Brass. I just could not take my eyes off. Too good.
Whole lot of brass and copper, stone items on the sale. Huge collections. Beautiful artefacts.
You will witness colour everywhere. Look any where, you will be looking at colours only. Below pictures show the colours of Surajkund Mela.
It is real Mela in true sense.
There were many performers with ethnic costumes, local musical instruments, and dancing at different places of the fair. Anyone could join them at will and dance all the way.
Here below is a smart guy who dressed up the colorful Pagdi (Turban) to any one who wished to , of course at Rs.100/- each. If you want a take away of the Pagdi, then it costs Rs.300.
Entry fee Rs.120 on week days, 180 on weekends. 50% discount for senior citizens.
The arrangements to maintain cleanliness and security was evident and much appreciable.
Surajkund Mela – what gets etched in my mind is bright colours of our India, truly, literally.
