Welcome to first Smoke-free City of India : Chandigarh. I like the city the because of its cleanness, friendly environment & excellent quality of life. Chandigarh is a quite near to the capital city of India - Delhi. There are lot of good places to see in Chandigarh. Here are few Pics:
Rock Garden: Rock garden is near to Sukhna Lake. The entrance leads to a magnificent, almost, surrealist arrangement of rocks, boulders, broken chinaware, discarded fluorescent tubes, broken and cast away glass bangles, building waste, coal & clay-all juxtaposed to create a dream folk world of places, soldiers, monkeys, village life, women and temples. In the end there is a huge open space surrounded by different kind of mirrors having special effects. There are lot of things to do for children.

Shanti Kunj: This is situated at a very peaceful place that is free from noise and pollution. It is located between Rose Garden & the Cricket Stadium in Sector-16. This is full of lush green grounds and varieties of plants/trees like vertical shaped trees, trees that provide shade, trees apt for environment & flowering trees. Also there are some medicinal plants that are utilized to cure several diseases. There is a natural stream that runs in this garden. Try to cover this place while you go to Rose garden.

Rose Garden: Rose garden is spread over 30 acres of land having 1600 different species of roses. These have been planted beautifully carved out lawns and flowers. I have not any good photograph of rose belts because most of the time I visited the place without camera or in out of season. Every year, either at end of February or beginning of March, a big festival known as Rose Festival, is celebrated at this garden. Don’t miss the musical fountains in the evening.
