"B?b? Far?d was born in 1173 or 1188 AD (584 Hijri) at Kothewal village, 10 km from Multan in the Punjab region of what is now Pakistan, to Jam?l-ud-d?n Suleim?n and Maryam B?b? (Qarsum B?b?), daughter of Sheikh Waj?h-ud-d?n Khojend?.\nFar?d's lineage is traced back to the second Caliph Umar ibn Khattab. B?b? Far?d received his early education at Multan, which had become a centre for education; it was here that he met his murshid (master), Qu?budd?n Bakhtiy?r K?k?, a noted Sufi saint, who was passing through Multan, from Baghdad on his way to Delhi. Upon completing his education, Far?d left for Sistan and Kandahar and went to Mecca for the Hajj pilgrimage at the age of 16.\nOnce his education was over, he shifted to Delhi, where he learned the doctrine of his master, Qu?budd?n Bakhtiy?r K?k?. He later moved to Hansi, Haryana. When Qu?budd?n Bakhtiy?r K?k? died in 1235, Far?d left Hansi and became his spiritual successor, but he settled in Ajodhan (the present Pakpattan, Pakistan) instead of Delhi. On his way to Ajodhan, while passing through Faridkot, he met the 20-year-old Niz?mudd?n, who went on to become his disciple, and later his successor (khal?fah).\nB?b? Far?d married Hazabara, daughter of Sul??n Nas?rudd?n Ma?m?d. The great Arab traveller Ibn Ba???ah visited him. He says that he was the spiritual guide of the King of India, and that the King had given him the village of Ajodhan. He also met B?b? Far?d's two sons. His shrine (darb?r) is in Pakpattan\nB?b? Far?d's descendants, also known as Fareedi, Fareedies and Faridy, mostly carry the name F?r?q?, and can be found in Pakistan, India and the diaspora. His descendants include the Sufi saint Salim Chishti, whose daughter was Emperor Jehangir's foster mother. Their descendants settled in Sheikhupur, Badaun and the remains of a fort they built can still be found."

"Badkhal Lake was a natural lake situated in Faridabad, Haryana, about 16 kilometers from Delhi.\nIt was a natural lake surrounded by hilly areas of the Aravali Range in Haryana.\nAs of May 2009, the lake is almost a completely dried up grassy terrain and the unusually low rainfall in the area has been cited. Certain mines surrounding the lake are also responsible for blockage of flow of water to the lake's reservoir. Also some mineral water companies are responsible as well, for taking water from the lake for their purposes.\nOn 30 November 2009, it was announced that the lake and the nearby Surajkund, would be filled up with water, by the time 2010 Commonwealth Games arrive, but no action was taken."

"Surajkund (?????????) is an ancient reservoir of the 10th century, 2 kilometres (1.2 mi) away to the south west from a more ancient dam of the 8th century called the Anagpur Dam; both are located in Haryana, India. Surajkund (literal meaning is 'Lake of the Sun') is an artificial Kund ('Kund' means \"lake\" or reservoir) built in the backdrop of the Aravalli hills with an amphitheatre shaped embankment constructed in semicircular form. It is said to have been built by the Tomar king Suraj Pal of Tomar dynasty in the 10th century. Tomar was a sun worshipper and he had therefore built a Sun temple on its western bank.\nAnother 'kund' by the same name as 'Suraj Kund' existed in Sunam city, famous for surajkand mela, tahsil and sub division of the Sangrur District in Punjab. This was sacked by Mahmood Ghaznvi or Taimur Lane. The temple is now in ruins."
