Sohna, Gurgaon Overview

Gurgaon is a happening place with a great urban lifestyle. New skyscrapers arise now and then and the urban jungle keeps growing bigger day by day. If you wish to go back to your roots to mother nature and away from the hustle bustle of the main city, head south towards Alwar. The city of gold dust awaits you. Sohna, also known as Greater or Southern Gurugram derived its name from the gold dust which was found here in the sand of streams after heavy rains.

Sohna is a popular weekend getaway for the people of NCR region and is a favorite short stay destination for the tourists as well. Located near a vertical rock, it is most famous for its hot springs and Shiva Temple. Sohna lies in the foothills of the Aravalis and hence, is surrounded by a hilly terrain.

Damdama Lake is a favorite picnic spot for many who come to enjoy the boating and picturesque views. Built by the king of Gwalior, the ancient Shiva temple houses hot springs which are strongly sulfurous and widely famous for their medicinal properties. Both the temple and the hot springs are revered by the locals who organize annual pujas and fairs at the temple. The Bharatpur Hill Fort presents an eerie yet beautiful sight. The half finished fort is a photographer's delight.
