Cutting edge, legendary, postmodern architecture may define Chandigarh but it's the city's matchless style that will captivate you. Known worldwide for its elaborate buildings and arterial roadways, this calm, quiet city on the foothills of Shiwalik boasts of a plethora of incredibly landscaped gardens and parks. Of particular interest is Rock Garden, a fantasyland created out of industrial waste and rocks. Gateway to Himachal Pradesh, Chandigarh is known for its proximity to major tourist hillstations like Shimla, Manali, Dharamsala.
Deriving its name from Goddess Chandi, with a temple in her dedication, the city is recognised for its progressive architecture, designed by the French architect Le Corbusier and his team. Unlike other major Indian cities, Chandigarh's legacy is not defined by the eras that have passed it by, but by its domestic architecture. This green glazed beauty while being a paragon of order doesn't follow any rules. Soak in the sheer amount of culture, urban design, space, restaurants, shopping and, best of all, the spirit of its inhabitants and in no time you will be punch drunk on their unmistakable, infectious zest for life.

Natural beauty coupled with pleasant weather, picturesque skylines and incredible sunsets Chandigarh is the perfect place for outdoor fun filled activities. Some of the things you could engage yourself in Chandigarh include Boating, Theme Parks and Golfing. Also, the city is a shopper’s paradise with loads of options to choose from. Chandigarh offers unique shopping spots filled with quality women’s clothing and custom designed fashion. Venture into the shopping markets of Sector 22 and Sector 9 and you will find them lined with wall to wall clothing shops of North Indian ethnic wear, particularly Punjabi, with designs that are simple and elegant as well as heavily embroidered and bedazzling party wear. In addition to these, the other popular shopping destination is the upscale Sector 17 market. Higher-end stores mixed with local boutiques, and some of the city's coolest hotels and trendiest restaurants crowd Sector 17, city’s well heeled neighborhood. A stroll through the outer reaches of the streets will reveal many additional shops and designer showrooms.
