A picturesque botanical garden, located between the Rock Garden and Sukhna
Lake in Sector 1 stretches to about 88 acres. The main attraction of this
garden is its rock formations, small lily-pools and rare species of plants
kept in the green house.

ever green and exotic plants are arranged in each corner. This is the
only place in Chandigarh where beautiful lotus flowers can be seen.
