4 Nights / 5 Days
Chandigarh – Amritsar: 4 Hrs (250 Kms)
Chandigarh: Chandigarh, a union territory that is the capital of both Punjab as well as Haryana, is India’s first planned city. A traditionally Punjabi city at heart with a healthy dose of modernity, Chandigarh’s food and gedi culture (a leisure drive or ride in the city) is what the capital is really known for. A favourite activity of the locals at Chandigarh is boating at the beautiful Sukhna Lake. The other important attractions in the city are the Rock Garden, the Leisure Valley & Rose Garden. Chandigarh’s Rock Garden is very well known for having been entirely designed out of discarded industrial and urban waste while the Leisure Valley is an 8-kilometre-long well-maintained park which houses Asia’s most extensive rose garden, a very popular draw among tourists and locals alike. Another famous place to visit in Chandigarh is the Capitol complex, which is also often referred to as Le Corbusier Centre. Earlier used as Le Corbusier’s base, this UNESCO World Heritage Site has now been converted into a museum, and tourists are free to visit it. The Capitol is also home to the state’s Vidhan Sabha, High Court, and Secretariat.
Amritsar: Home of the glorious Golden Temple, the iconic city of Amritsar, portrays the heroic character of Punjab. A day in this peaceful city starts with the spiritual prayers from Gurudwaras. The original name of, Harmandir Sahib the first ancient lake, then of the temple complex, and later the surrounding city, meaning “pool of ambrosial nectar”, Amritsar is the spiritual and cultural center of the Sikh Religion. Baisakhi festival brings out Amritsar’s respledent face with its finest food, clothes and merry-making. This place is also famous for its Jallianwala Bagh massacre and its proximity to Wagah Border. The satiating food and generous dollops of legendary Punjabi hospitality further connive to cast a spell upon the visitor.
