Chandigarh is a city adorned with awe-inspiring and spellbinding views. Besides being the cleanest city of India, it is replete with gardens, parks and lakes that attract tourists from across the country. With its broad roads and a well-planned architecture, Chandigarh is the dream of every urban city.
During the spring time, when India is yet to face the scorching heat of summers, exploring the attractions of Chandigarh is a prudent idea. If you have never been to Chandigarh before, these are the 3 places you must visit:
Spend an evening at the Sukhna Lake
Sukhna Lake is a pinnacle of beauty that was created in 1958. This man-made lake is ideal to enjoy a calm evening snuggling in the lap of nature with your family and friends. While the summers are hot and exhausting, the springs experience a very pleasant weather. People often indulge in boating in this placid lake during the evening time when the sun is about to set and the cool breeze replenishes your soul. Sitting on the bank and watching the reflection of the sun in that peaceful environment is a truly astonishing feeling.
Nearby, there is a small silent garden with a statue of Buddha in it. Adorned with dim lights, it is blessed with a very peaceful and solitary ambience. People looking for an escape from the bustling city can visit here anytime, as it remains open 24*7, and enjoy the captivating atmosphere it beholds. After taking in the sights and the sounds, you must head back to 24/7 All Day Dining at your hotel, The LaLiT Chandigarh to enjoy a buffet experience like none other.
Embrace the beauty of the Rock Garden
Nek Chand’s Rock Garden is an epitome of art and beauty spread over 40 acres. What started as an illicit activity several years ago is now one of the spellbinding destinations of Chandigarh. It is an exceptional piece of art that was constructed entirely with reclaimed, reused and recycled materials. Today, his masterpiece manifests his striking creativity and imagination and allures people from different parts of the country. You can spend hours exploring the meticulously designed garden.
Drive aimlessly on the roads
The city is embedded with greenery. This makes it the ideal place to visit during spring. The Purv Marg roads are embellished with trees on either side that grow new green leaves and vibrant flowers in the fall of summer, and you can see the faraway houses and hotels near the Chandigarh airport. You can visit the Mango belt that separates the industrial area from the residential one. Driving through this 4-km stretch covered with lush green trees is truly mesmerising.
Enjoy your stay at The LaLiT Chandigarh and spend some spring time in the beautiful garden city of India.
