City Beautiful : Captivating Chandigarh - The City of Gardens

The city of Chandigarh is located towards the North of India and shares its borders with Punjab in the north-west and Haryana in the south-east. Being the capital of two states, Punjab and Haryana as well as a Union Territory of India, Chandigarh is known to be a cosmopolitan city that offers a beautiful mix of modernity and old world charm, what with its beautiful architecture seen throughout the city, its warm people and its serene, green cover, thanks to the large number of gardens that beautify this well planned Indian city.

The green city of Chandigarh has derived its name from two words – “Chandi” which refers to the goddess whose temple is located close by and “Garh” which means a fort. Also known as the “City Beautiful”, Chandigarh is widely appreciated for its cleanliness.

The city is well connected by air, road and rail and has much to offer the discerning traveller who is guaranteed to see glimpses of the city’s past, culture and tradition.

Here is a look at some of the must-sees (Tourist Attractions) while in Chandigarh –

Religion & Faith - Places of Worship in Chandigarh

Both Sikhs and Hindus co-exist in this City of Gardens. There are a number of Gurudwaras and temples in and around the vicinity of Chandigarh and each one of them holds special significance for the devotees.

1. Mansa Devi Temple Located about 8 kms from the Chandigarh bus stop; this is a famous temple of Goddess Mansa Devi and is frequently visited by worshippers from all over India, especially during Navratras.

2. Chandi Mandir When in Chandigarh, you must visit the Chandi Mandir which is situated about 15 kms from Chandigarh and 10 km from the Mansa Devi Temple, on the Chandigarh – Kalka road and is home to Goddess Chandi. In fact, it is believed that Chandigarh was named after this temple.

3. Saketri Temple Just 20 km from the city, this Lord Shiva temple sees large crowds of devotees, especially during Shivratri.

   

4. Gurudwara Nada Sahib Thousands of Sikhs visit this Gurudwara all year round. Named after Nada Sahib, a follower of Guru Gobind Singh, the Gurudwara Nada Sahib is located 15 km from Chandigarh.

5. Baoli Sahib Gurdwara The Baoli Sahib Gurudwara is located on the Zirakpur - Kalka Highway and holds a lot of religious significance for the Sikh community. It is believed that it was Guru Gobind Singh who solved the problem of water shortage in this area by shooting an arrow into the ground. The spot where the arrow hit the ground became the source of thirst quenching water for the people of this village. The baoli or shallow well is considered to be very holy.
