Visited this garden in mid-March. This garden is in middle of the city & our hotel was just opposite. As it was not the season for roses, there weren't too many roses around.
This is a big garden in middle of Chandigarh but once you enter it you are away from all noise, pollution and there is just peace & chirping of birds. Its really unbelievable that India can have places like this.
We had reached this place around 4 pm & it was not overtly crowded. There is no entry fee (again a pleasant surprise).There were few pensioners & mostly young guys/girls around. The gardeners were busy mowing the lawn & besides their lawnmowers there wasn't any other mechanical sound. As we moved further to the centre of the garden even that noise subsided and time moved very slowly.
We sat down on soft grass & couldn't resist to lie down in the March cool breeze.....WOW! That was awesome. We spent good 15 minutes watching the sky, birds & squirrels. If we were not talking, we would have easily drifted to a nice snooze.
Those staying in concrete jungles, I will highly recommend you go to this garden, not just to see roses but to fill your lungs with clean air & your mind with peace. If you have time on your hand you can easily spend 1 - 1.5 hrs here.
