Though I have not lived in Chandigarh but I have been there a couple of times. There is no doubt that Chandigarh is the best place to live in India. It is the first planned city of India and its master plan was prepared by French Architect Le Corbusier. It’s a union territory which is also the capital city of the states of Haryana & Punjab. It is commonly known as pensioner’s paradise because a signification part of the population is employed by either of three governments.
The people are more than lively; they eat great food and enjoy their booze like no other. The lively Punjabi community and their ever superior hospitality have no match in the world.
There are 10 convincing reasons which prove why Chandigarh is the best place to live. Let’s have a look at each one of them.
