From anywhere in Chandigarh to the airport with Mega Cabs
February 6, 2016
Chandigarh means "The Fort of Chandi". This name was generated from the ancient temple called ChandiMandir, devoted to Hindu goddess Chandi. It is the first planned city in India, Chandigarh is known internationally for its architecture and urban design.
Planned, modern city, significant as a symbol of a developing, progressive and free India, Chandigarh is pragmatic mix of the functional and the aesthetic, romanticism blended with practicality.
Chandigarh has acquired the unique distinction of being a capital to two states. The wide tree lined roads, unique architecture, greenery, the Rock Garden and its citizens, all merge and emerge to characterise a city of the future, with no baggage of the past.
Despite a plethora of plush malls dotting the Jalandhar cityscape nowadays, this cramped bazaar near NakoddarChawk remains one of the favourite hubs for the city's shopaholics. The narrow bylanes of Rainak Bazaar are dotted with as many scooters, bicycles and rickshaws parked haphazardly, as they are with the kiosks selling colourful commodities.
Offering an immense variety of goods, the market is known for its cosmetics, apparel, footwear, toys, kids' stuff, kitchenware, plastic ware and eatables that are all available at throwaway prices. Besides this there are showrooms retailing wedding wear, authentic silver jewellery and a variety of traditional Punjabi pictures, brassware, and silverware and handicraft items as well.
Now, there are enough whys and wherefores to visit every corner of the city this weekend.
