This beautiful city serves as the capital of two important states, Punjab and Haryana. Each day, a lot of people commute to and from Chandigarh to other parts of the country. It is also one the important business cities in India.
A visit to Chandigarh is incomplete without tasting its mouth-watering and lip-smacking delicacies. The people of the city are all-time food lovers, who prefer exotic preparations with lots of spices. As in any other place of Punjab, the traditional food of Chandigarh is spicy and makes use of oil and ghee to a considerably higher extent.
Chandigarh’s many marketplaces- you are unlikely to emerge empty handed. Chandigarh offers unique shopping spots filled with quality women’s clothing and custom designed fashion. Venture into the shopping markets of Sector 22 and Sector 9 and you will find them lined with wall to wall clothing shops of North Indian ethnic wear, particularly Punjabi, with designs that are simple and elegant as well as heavily embroidered and bedazzling party wear. The neighbourhood is full of footwear stores, lower-priced clothing shops and kiosks.
There is no doubt Chandigarh is one of the safest cities in India for girls, couples and families to enjoy till late night.Chandigarh people are not that placid always. To the core of night, they grow wilder with their instincts winning over their protocol and decorum. In fact, Chandigarh Nightclubs know how to pull out the deepest desires from the deep down valley of mind. The nightlife at Chandigarh, so, is always vivacious and effervescent. If you have a knack for stay awake until the rock bottom of nighttime, the Chandigarh nightclubs, pubs and bars are only for you. Nocturnal mischief will surely influence your mindset at pick hours.
The most striking thing about the city is the expanse of resplendent blue sky with the mountains in the backdrop. When you are approaching the city, you would see the jagged skyline of the Shivalik Hills looming large over the city and the faint image of an old temple dedicated to Goddess Chandi (15 km from Chandigarh) from which the city got its name.
