MAIN ROAD BETWEEN SECTORS 17 & 16

This 4-laned arterial road from the Matka chowk roundabout is one of my personal favorites. You are actually in the heart of Chandigarh surrounded by Sector-17, Hotel Taj, Rose Garden & Stadium. Moreover, you have the view of The Shivaliks.

SISWAN ROAD

Those who have been living in Chandigarh for a while now have seen the evolution of this lesser known place on the outskirts of the city. The road to Siswan Dam is one of the latest fad among the driving enthusiasts to go for a ride. The road is as wide as it can possibly be, minimal traffic and lush green fields on both the side.
