What To Do In A Day In Chandigarh

Featured

September 24, 2018

Chandigarh is a planned city like few else in India. It lacks the heritage status of several older cities, but more than makes up with its tree-lined streets, clean boulevards and an overall picture of good governance. Due to its geographical proximity to Delhi and other big cities, Chandigarh has now emerged as an important business hub. It is also the gateway to the mountains, as Himachal Pradesh is barely a stone’s throw away. We look at some of the best ways to enjoy a day in this Union Territory:

Take a Boat Ride at the Sukhna Lake

sukhna lake Sukhna is a human-made lake on the foothills of the Himalayas. It acts as a reservoir for the entire city. A boat ride on the lake is extremely relaxing with lots of ducks and swans around. The lake even attracts migratory birds during the winters.

Understand Architecture at the Le Corbusier Centre

chandigarh As the name suggests, this is a celebration of the works of the man who designed the layout for this city. This centre gives an overview on architectural and town planning styles used within the city and across the world.

Visit Nek Chand’s Rock Garden

The unique thing about this is that it has entirely been built using household scrap material. An environmentalist’s dream, the entire garden has been conceived to recycle waste.

Shop at Sector-17

Savour Butter Chicken at Pal Dhaba

Hop on to the Timber Trail

While Kasauli is best known, another hill-station within the vicinity of the city is Parwanoo.

Let the Gluttony flow at the Amritsari Kulcha Hub
