  3. Chandigarh is awesome and it’s no secret. Nevertheless, you won’t be able to decipher its level of awesomeness unless you are actually a part of the city. It’s more than just another union territory of India where oldies come to settle down but it’s a place that’ll make anyone and everyone shake a leg to the beats of Bhangra! Burrraahh!

  4. Nice to read. Long time back, I visited Chandigarh and took a lunch break on the way to Shimla. That time we visited that fantastic Rosegarden. We didn’t get much time to explore those place. If I get a chance to visit Chandigarh ill surely visit those places.

  5. I was in Chandigarh for few hours last year, but couldn’t see anything other than the insides of the airport (and the Kings XI team and Preity Zinta :D) I have many friends from Chandigarh who have been bugging me to come visit them, but it has just not happened till now. Should plan a visit soon.

    PS: I’m a huge fan of makhi di roti and saarson ka saag. Insane combo.
