Chandigarh
  • Chandigarh is the best-planned city in India, with world-renowned architecture and an unparalleled quality of life. Not only is it the capital of states Punjab and Haryana, but is also a union territory in itself. The face of modern India, Chandigarh is the manifestation of a dream that Pt. Jawaharlal Nehru envisaged and Le Corbusier executed. Serenity and a city are two diametrically opposite concepts, which however, get amazingly merged in this beautiful city. Chandigarh is a rare epitome of modernisation co-existing with nature. It is only here that trees and plants are as much a part of the construction plans as are the building and the roads. India’s first planned city is a rich, prosperous, spic and span, green city and is rightly called “The City Beautiful”

     

    PLACES TO SEE IN CHANDIGARH

     

    Government Museum and Art Gallery: The Government Museum and Art Gallery is one of the most renowned museums in India. Inaugurated in 1968 and situated in the heart of Chandigarh with a sprawling campus, this museum has a unique collection of art objects, paintings and sculptures. Nearly 40% of the Museums objects were brought from the Lahore Museum after Partition in 1948. This makes the museum’s collection even more remarkable.

     

    Shanti Kunj: Shanti Kunj, true to its name, is a garden of peace and tranquillity which provides a break from all the noise and pollution. Located between Rose garden and the Cricket stadium, it can be visited easily. The lush greenery of Shanti Kunj is irrigated by a natural stream which divides the garden into five sections with different plant varieties. If one wants to meditate or enjoy a quiet time among beautiful flowers, Shanti Kunj is the place to be.

On the other hand, the imperial city of New Delhi, created by the British Raj, is a combination of spacious tree lined avenues and imposing government buildings.
