Chandigarh was the stop over for my trip to the Himachal Pradesh, April 2013. It was a good stop over. India’s planned city does come across as planned. The buildings are shorter with a height limit, the roads are really wide, lots of gardens, sectors that are well defined but confusing for outsiders and a lot of other salient aspects. These set it apart from your usual Indian city that usually resembles a jumble.
So many colorful trees – yellow, purple, orange… wow! First time I saw Spring season!
and also quite claustrophobic at times, so people scared of confined spaces – Don’t go because its a 1 hour walk and there are exits only at the two ends. So in the middle if you want turn back its a damn long walk……
The whole fort like structure was made of odd stuff. Not always rock even socket/plug waste, gunny bags, broken tiles and what not! It was interesting but also a little bewildering…. what was the guy who made it upto?
Loved the adult swings in the ‘courtyard’ of Rock Garden
