I visit Chandigarh often as part of my work travel and every time I go, I get amazed at the meticulous planning that went into developing Chandigarh as the most well laid out cities in India.
The broad roads adjoining the service roads keeps the traffic flow well in control. The avenue plantation gives this city the Green look as we drive on these roads.
The Rose Garden with its wide varieties of roses offers a great place to walk around, is a treat to the eyes and mind.
Though I visited Nek Chand's rock garden many years ago, I can still appreciate the genius of the artist who created wealth from low value household items. One must visit this place to rekindle his/her creative mind.
The Lake offers a great jogging track be it early morning or the evening. The Lake located in the heart of the city is always busy with local and outside population. The lake side pub offers great beer and snacks to cool off.
I love this city and always look forward to going back again.
Being at the foot of the rocky mountains which lead to Shimla, it is the gateway to a great vacation.
