Having earned the epithet of City Beautiful Chandigarh surely lives up to it. Chandigarh is a Union Territory as well as the only capital city of two states namely Punjab and Haryana in India. The city derived its name from Goddess Chandi. Designed by French Architect Le Corbusier, Chandigarh is the first modern planned city of India. Situated near the foothills of the Himalayan ranges Shivalik, Chandigarh is a nature lover's paradise. Amidst beautiful hills and the Sukhna Lake, the city acts as a magnet for people longing for pollution free and peaceful stay. Chandigarh enjoys an excellent climate due to its proximity to Himachal Pradesh and thus is frequented by global tourists throughout the year.
Being a capital city, Chandigarh has administrative and business importance. Chandigarh has several luxury and budget hotels keeping in mind the varied needs and pocket of a visitor. The five star and other luxury hotels of Chandigarh provide the visitor with world class facilities and ensure that the stay at the hotel is in keeping with classy Punjabi touch. Government run hotels and
guest houses are other places of lodging in Chandigarh which would meet all the quality standards and would be economical as well.
