10 Interesting Things About The Chandigarh City
Today join hands with me to celebrate the lively spirit of Chandigarh. Here are 10 top interesting reasons which make this beautiful city so very KHAAS and much more closer to our hearts-
1. India’s Most Planned city
Chandigarh is a very different city when compared to the other cities in India. It’s green, clean and also one of the most important things today safe. This city is the most well-planned city in India. Chandigarh was designed by Le Corbusier a French architect. The city is neatly divided into different sectors; it has wide and well-connected roads with beautiful landscapes roundabouts. The only sand thing is traffic, which like the other cities has not spared Chandigarh. Presently Chandigarh too is facing this one common issue.
2. The ‘Bullts’ & ‘Kineys’
Well don’t worry this isn’t about Biology here. To put it in simple words, the boys in Chandigarh do not leave their homes withouth their ‘Bults’ and the girls without their ‘Kineys’. These ‘Bults’ are nothing but the Bullet Bikes, boys here love to ride bullets, and Bults is the nickname. Likewise the ‘Kineys’ is the Kinetic Scotty, these are the best friend of every girl in Chandigarh.
3. Always Happening crowd
You have to check out the every happening crowd in Sec 17, Gedri route and Sec 15 in Chandigarh. You wouldn’t notice how time would just fly away nibbling on an ice cream. If you want to check out the real crowd in Chandigarh, you have to visit Sec 17, trust me there is nothing that you can every compare to this huge and happening crowd. Sector 17 has many malls and many coming up soon, like Elante Mall and several other malls. If I have to give the number one position to any place here specifically for the crowd, then without a doubt Sec 17 will top this list. Well it’s definitely the crowd that make this place lively, but what supports them perfectly is the beautiful shady trees, cool breeze and wide open sky. Perfect place to relax even on those hot summer days. Apart from sec 17, you can also check out Gedri route and sec 15 in the evening.

Don’t even dare to ignore even the minor traffic rules, yes be ready to pay challans as they won’t spare you and you can’t bribe them and get away.
