Chandigarh Cricket Holidays & Tours
Imagine your perfect city. For the people of India, Chandigarh comes close. Nicknamed the City Beautiful, it was primarily designed by the world-renowned architect Le Corbusier and commissioned following independence from Britain. Like many post-World War II projects it may lack the character of older cities. But it abounds with gardens and sculptures and definitely feels different from other Indian cities. You’ll find the usual plethora of tasty eateries and shopping opportunities but Chandigarh seems greener and less polluted.
Chandigarh highlights include the serene Sukhna Lake, fed by spring water from the hills and home to the colourful Mango Festival during Monsoon season. Leisure Valley is a reclaimed strip of land encompassing the city’s prized Rose Garden. While no Chandigarh visit is complete without a trip to the Open Hand. This 26m high sculpture, which represents peace and reconciliation, is dramatically framed by the Shivalik Hills beyond.
