Chandigarh’s place in recent history relates to the partition of India and Pakistan in 1947. The Punjab was divided into the Indian side and the Pakistani side. Haryana is generally a Hindi speaking state, while Punjab is a Punjabi speaking state. Chandigarh borders these two states.

There are a few important sights in Chandigarh. The Open Hand Monument and the Rock Garden should be visited atleast for once. The traveler then has the option of exploring the area around Chandigarh, which boasts forests, nature and trekking, or using the city as a base to move to other important parts of North India. Restaurants with good reviews in Chandigarh are the Barbeque Nation which specializes barbeque, the Mainland China which specializes in Chinese food, and Nandos which is a a Portugese restaurant.

Sector seventeen is the main shopping area in the city. Here you will find books, electronics, and clothes. Travelers looking for something different can visit the Mansa Devi Temple, Chattbir Zoo, hill station in the Morni Hills or the nearby spiky destination of the Cactus Garden.

Chandigarh was the first founded city after the independence of India. French and English architects contributed to the planning of the city center. The green avenues of the city center earned Chandigarh the nickname 'the city beautiful.' All precautions that should be taken in large Indian cities also apply in Chandigarh. Be careful of pickpockets and strangers who offer food and drink. Try not to walk alone or in small groups late at night. 

Get to Chandigarh by train or plane. Being the capital of two states and a major hub of north India, it’s no surprise that Chandigarh is well connected. There are inter-city buses connecting Chandigarh to other points in north India. However, taking the train is cost effective and more comfortable.
