Why you should choose Chandigarh for your monsoon trip
Planned by the famous French architect Le Corbusier, Chandigarh is known as one of the best experiments in urban planning and modern architecture in 20th century India. As the world moves towards adopting a seamless and picture perfect urban layout, with each passing day, Chandigarh has emerged as a reference point whenever there is talk of building a planned city. However, what makes Chandigarh special is the way in which it marries modernity with nature.
Picturesquely located in the foothills of the Shivaliks, Chandigarh, “The City Beautiful”, is coming up as the metropolis of wide boulevards, plentiful green spaces and noteworthy architecture. An urban trendsetter par excellence, the city has none of the issues confronted by major metros, like overpopulation, traffic jams and overburdened civic services. What makes Chandigarh even more special is the beauty of nature which dominates the landscape within the city and in its vicinity with equal aplomb, making it a sought after destination across the year.
As clouds cover the skies, tree-lined skyline of Chandigarh, having Himalayas in the back drop, offers a surreal view. With the weather on the cusp of turning pleasant and romantic, the clean and green city of Chandigarh is the quintessential monsoon paradise. It is a bag full of happy surprises to suit everyone’s disposition as well as their desires from a monsoon getaway.
