It was when we friends decided for a single day tour of the city beautiful.
No plans were made earlier but late at night with a limited budget. Early morning we went to Bus stand at sector 43 to catch a bus for Mansa Devi Shrine. The Temple was around 15-20 Km from Bus stand. The Auto/Cab would charge around 300 or more. we visited the temple and had Lunch there at Bhandara. We spent some quality time roaming there. It is a good place with garden and picturesque surrounding.
Afterwards, we travelled to Sector 17 Bus stand and visited the rose garden in sector 16. We again went to sector 17 to catch another bus for Rock Garden. It was built by Nek Chand using waste materials such as broken bangles, tiles, bulb holders etc. we took our time to visit the garden and were mesmerised by its beauty.
From there we went to Sukhna Lake, one of the happening places in City Beautiful. We had some snacks and rested on the benches provided. We wanted to visit the Le Corbusier Center but were running out of time.
It was a fun trip, away from daily hectic work.
