It is an “urban village” that has made the visitors to fall in love with itself and has created much of buzz amongst the others. It is a one of its kind of adventure and entertainment resort, which witnesses the amalgamation of modern amenities with exotic village.

The day spent in the urban village will be forever etched in our hearts. Right from the inauguration of “Village of City” my elder one and husband were adamant on visiting the destination. My daughter exclaimed mom it is a unique project, with mesmerizing village beauty, traditional Indian delicacies, lush green gardens, fresh breeze of air, adventure sports activities and much more. To which my husband added we have to be here to experience the warm hospitality of the place and revisit the village life.
On reaching there I was spell bound on seeing the beautiful architecture of that place, it had the right amount of combination of the culture of Haryana and Rajasthan. Surajgarh farms welcomed us with the traditional dhol music which made us dance on its beats and thus we could spend quality time with our friends and family. It had special showcase of talent by the Rajasthani artisans and beautiful decorations done by rural artists. We tried our hands in making these traditional artifacts and handicrafts. Amidst all laughter and giggles we made stuff and were quite elated with our creations. The air is pure and there is no pollution in the air there and this made it so refreshing that the kids exclaimed that it smells so beautiful here and we could not agree more to this fact.
The place beautifully preserves the beauty of villages in this era of rapid urbanization and modernization. It is the fusion of Rajasthan and Haryana in the busy metro city to help you to relax and rejuvenate.
The food here is a treat to your taste buds. I had a blast trying the amazing lip- smacking delicacies here that was fondly called as “khan paan” by the servers here. The food was traditionally cooked on mud baked stoves. The best chefs from the Palaces of Rajasthan were called upon to cook the delicacies from heart of villages. The kids loved the different taste of food. Importantly with best of the ingredients good quality food was prepared in utmost hygienic conditions.
There was relaxation zone here that provided head massage amidst the colorful village beauty that could put shame to any modern spa resorts. The relaxation was just the required thing after days of rigorous work and stress.
To fulfill our adventure and entertainment quotient it had camel ride,horse ride and bullock ride, which was thoroughly enjoyed by my little girls. Cart ride and tractor ride was loved by all and was a delight for us. We enjoyed mud bath,swimmimg pool and tube well bath and it helped us relive our childhood days and get our kids to insight in to our childhood days. My kids were mesmerized to see the puppet dance and they also tried to copy a few steps from the puppet and do the puppet dance. We tried our hands at zip lining, dart, air gun games and so much more that there was healthy competition amongst us.
The enchanting folk dance forced us to clap and feel the beat of the dance, it got mehendi done on my hands and was glad to see my beautiful hands. We tried to do some agricultural activities and thus I got the chance to explain my kids about the hard work of farmers and why should not we waste any food.
The cheerful and beautiful ambience of Surajgarh was much required and is the best weekend getaway for the city dwellers like us. It was a captivating and enchanting experience for us.
