Chandigarh in North India is a union territory that serves as the administrative capital of both Haryana and Punjab. This post-independence city was designed by a Swiss-French architect, Le Corbusier and is world renowned for its phenomenal urban design and architecture. It’s also reported to be one of thecleanest cities in the country by a study by the national government. Chandigarh is well connected to its neighbouring states by a good network of road, rail and air transport. The Chandigarh Transport Undertaking (CTU) handles interstate and intercity buses. The Chandigarh Airport handles commercial flights to major cities across India and international flights to Sharjah and Dubai. The Chandigarh Junction serves as the main hub for the Northern Railway in India and provides connectivity to every state across the country. Chandigarh attracts large numbers of tourists every year and many hotels have come up to accommodate them. If you’re on a budget, you can choose from a number of comfortable two-star hotels in Chandigarh. These hotels are normally small two to four storey buildings that are located near major intersections, popular tourist attractions, and transportation hubs around the city. They’re usually clean and well maintained but don’t expect too many on-site amenities. Most 2-star hotels in Chandigarh do not have in-house restaurants, but that shouldn’t cause too many problems as they are close to a number of affordable well-ranked restaurants. Marvel at Chandigarh’s spectacular architecture, flora and fauna, and culture by visiting popular attractions like the Capitol Complex, International Doll’s Museum, the Hidden Valley, Sector 17 Plaza, Government Museum and Art Gallery, the Rock Garden, Le Corbusier Centre, ISKCON Temple, Sukhna Lake, Terraced Garden, and Zakir Hussain Rose Garden. The city also boasts a rich ecosystem, with multiple eucalyptus and banyan plantations around. Visit the Sukhna Wildlife Sanctuary and the Parrot Bird Sanctuary to see a little bit of the union territory’s natural splendor.
