Sukhna Lake

Sukhna Lake in Chandigarh, India, is a reservoir at the foothills (Shivalik hills) of the Himalayas. This 3 km² rainfed lake was created in 1958 by damming the Sukhna Choe, a seasonal stream coming down from the Shivalik Hills. Originally the seasonal flow entered the lake directly causing heavy siltation. To check the inflow of silt, 25.42 km² of land was acquired in the catchment area and put under vegetation. In 1974, the Choe was diverted and made to bypass the lake completely, the lake being fed by three siltation pots, minimising the entry of silt into the lake itself.

Capitol Complex

Recently declared by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site, the Chandigarh Capitol Complex is home to some of the most spectacular works of Le Corbusier, the architect, and the man behind the planning and designing of the city beautiful. Buildings such as the High Court, the Secretariat and the State Legislatures of Punjab & Haryana, and the Open Hand Monument, a life-sized symbol of the city beautiful, are magnificent in terms of design, and just as mesmerising in terms of their location, with the shivalik hills right in the background.
