The city of Chandigarh is a Union Territory that serves as the capital for states of Punjab and Haryana, though it is not administered by them. It is renowned for being very well-planned and modern in its infrastructure. It has been reported as the cleanest city in India. The city gets its name from a temple of Goddess Chandi, located nearby. The charm of this city is different from all other metropolitan cities. It has the hustle-bustle of large cities but void of the haphazard functioning.
Chandigarh, being located at the foothills of Shivalik Mountains, has a mesmerizing aura. Nature is well-preserved here with surrounding forests that are home to many species of birds, animals and plants. ‘The City Beautiful’, as it is also called, holds true to its name. This place plays a great host to tourists with varied preferences; from nature admirers to city babus to adventure enthusiasts.
