Welcome to Chandigarh


Architecturally, Chandigarh may not be everyone’s cup of chai, but it is, nevertheless, a very comfortable city to visit: prosperous, cosmopolitan and, compared to much of the rest of India, largely hassle-free. And in Nek Chand’s Rock Garden, Chandigarh has one of the region’s most intriguing attractions. The city is also just a short bus-hop from the quiet hill-station getaway of Morni.

Each sector of the city is self-contained and pedestrian-friendly. Most visitors concentrate their attention on Sector 17 (for shops and restaurants) and Sector 22 (for hotels).
