Just 8 km from South Delhi, Surajkund is a complex of sorts.In the 10th century AD, there was an amphitheatre sun-pool in Surajkund where the Tomars- the sun worshippers- used to gather. Fascinated by the surroundings of the terrain, Raja Suraj Pal, one of the chieftains,chose to build his stronghold here. A sun-pool and temple were designed.It is after this sun-pool that this complex came to be christened as Surajkund.Over the years, Surajkund has grown into a suburban retreat. The Aravalli ranges surround the location. The uneven levels of the land are dotted with clusters of silver oak, eucalyptus, kikar, bottle brush and bougainvillea. Patches of green proclaim the picnic spots. Hide-out fires dot the greens that look out at the sun pool. It is in this vast open space that a festive event, Surajkund Crafts Mela, is held each year from February 1 to 15. 
Also known as DAMDAMA LAKE,Saras is located at a distance of 64 km,from Delhi.The Aravalli hills form the majestic backdrp, while the depressions before these hills have been banked up on one side, forming a vast water body. This lake is deep, and nearly 8 km in length. The lake has excellent facilities for canoeing, kayaking and angling. 
Gurudwara Sidhbati is the famous site where Guru Nanak stayed during his sojourn at Kurukshetra. Among the many gurudwaras dotting the region are a gurudwara dedicated to Guru Hargobindji, located near the Sannihit tank and Gurudwara Rajghat built in the memory of Guru Gobind Singh's visit to Kurukshetra. 
Another sacred tank in Kurukshetra is Sannihit Sarovar which is believed to be the meeting point of seven sacred Saraswatis. According to a popular belief attached to the site, bathing in the waters of the tank on the days of Amavasyas (nights of complete darkness) or on the days of eclipse, brings one the punya (rewards/blessings) equivalent to performing the 'ashvamedh yajna'. Sannihit is also the site where wandering or unhappy souls find moksha or release from worldly ties. Prayers and pind daan for unnatural deaths is recommended here. By the side of the sarovar lie clusters of small shrines dedicated to Lord Vishnu, Dhruv Narayan, Laxmi Narayan, Dhruv Bhagat, Hanuman and Goddess Durga. Sannihit tank is believed to be the abode of Lord Vishnu. 

Towards the north of Thanesar and overlooking the sarai built by Sher Shah Suri stands the marble tomb of Sheikh Chehli. Sheikh Chehli was an Iranian Sufi saint, who came to Thanesar to meet Hazrat Qutub Jalaludin in the 16th century. The tomb is at present a protected monument.
