City Suratgarh city is culturally diverse. Most of the people from the main city are either employed by the government or local merchants. The city has a traditional Bagri cultural element, but, not being far from Punjab and Punjabi speaking areas of western Haryana, there is also a rich influence of Punjabi culture. The presence of two major military garrisons of Indian Air Force and Indian Army and the Super Thermal Power plant has resulted in the area being home to multiple cultures from all across India and Nepal. Due to security concerns cultural interactions between the civilian local residents and the military are extremely limited to senior administration officials.
