Also known as the Greater Gurugram or Southern Gurugram, Sohna is a municipal district in the Gurgaon district of Haryana located on the Delhi - Alwar Highway. Interestingly enough, the town derives its name from the word "Sona" (gold), which refers to the golden dust that blows in the area, especially after heavy rainfall. Set at the foot of Aravalli hills, the place is surrounded by hilly terrain. It is a popular weekend getaway spot for families and couples because of its medicinal water spring, Shiva temple, and Damdama lake. Moreover, Sohna is fast becoming a preferred weekend getaway for the city folk in New Delhi as well as Haryana due to the number of attractions present in and around it. These include the Ruins of Kamboj, hot water springs called Shiv Kund, Gora Barak Mosque, Damdama Lake and many more such getaways.
Sohna is also famous for being the site of the annual vintage car rally held every year in the month of February. Car collectors from all over India come to display their collection of vintage beauties including Rolls Royce, Aston Martins, and Austins. The rally also awards trophies to car owners based on their performance, maintenance, and restoration. Every year, the event draws hundreds of tourists who throng to witness these vintage beauties in action.
