Soon after India’s independence, Le corbusier, the famous French architect, was commissioned to design a model city. 

Corbusier chose a site in the foothills of the Shivalik Mountains, close to the temple of Goddess Chandi, and Chandigarh was born. 

Chandigarh is indeed a model city, sandwiched between the states of Punjab and Haryana, Chandigrah functions as a common capital for both.

A tribute to Corbusier whose primary concern was to avoid the urban congestion prevalent in most of India’s cities. 

Chandigarh

Leisure Valley of Chandigarh runs through several Sectors. with wide roads lined with avenues of trees, neat buildings, lush gardens, fountains, waterways and even a lake 

Places of Interest 

Sukhna Lake

On the south-eastern boundary of the city is the seasonal rivulet Sukhna Choe. Water through it used to flow away in the rainy season. Sukhna lake was formed by chanellising two hill streams, and is today a favourite with Chandigarh’s citizens who use its boulevard for their constitutionals. 

A three and half Km long dam was built to create a reservoir of water, now known as Sukhna Lake . The lake has also become the winter home for a large number of migratory birds from Central Asia who journey here to breed in its serene and unpolluted environs.

At one end of the Lake are the premises of Lake Club   The Club management takes care to provide facilities for water sports and recreational activities.

Rock Garden

There is a unique but a world famous fantasy in the city, called The Rock Garden. The are no flowers or plants in this garden. There are groups of music bands engaged in their activity of entertaining the visitors with silent rhythmic music. The garden was visualized by Nek Chand.

There is much more to be seen in this garden than to be told in a nut-shell. Once inside, one may spend hours and hours looking at the objects, even forgetting to come out. The garden was visualized by Nek Chand.

Government Museum and Art Gallery

As per its name historical and modern paintings and sculptures of vast range are housed in the museum. Kangra miniature paintings Gandhara sculptures.

The Rose Garden

Next to the city center, in sector 16, is situated Rose Garden sprawling in an area of 30 acres of land. There are thousands of varieties of roses and many more thousands of rose plants in it.
