Chandigarh, Himalayan North, India
Chandigarh, built by the utopian French architect Le Corbusier, was intended to be the symbol of modern India and is actually a tribute to its creator. While it amazes the local Indian visitor with its straight roads and simplicity, it is nothing new to overseas visitor used to the suburban sprawl. For the denizen of Chandigarh, the life is too tranquil devoid of the pressures of living in a "normal" "chaotic" Indian city. It grows on the person who lives there until he moves outside when he starts missing it. It is famous for the Mohali Cricket stadium situated in the satellite town of Mohali (outside UT Chandigarh in the state of Haryana). Average person in Chadigarh spends his free time looking at each other (men at women and women at men) in Sector 17 or Sukhna Lake. There is pretty much nothing to see beyond the "famous" Rock Garden Chandigarh is the staging point to visit many places around area. Places to visit from Chandigarh McLeodganj, the capital of Tibetan Government in Exile and the seat of Dalai Lama, and the trek in the Dhauladhar mountain ranges Solan and Shimla Amritsar and the Golden Temple

Punjab has such a unique flavor. Their food and dressing style is quite different from the rest of India.

Chandigarh, Himalayan North, India
This is an a-typical Indian city, the first city there that was completely designed by an architect. It was the swiss Le Corbusier that made sure that Chandigargh would be an example for modern cities. Rock Garden is the number one attraction in Chandigargh, and is definitely worth a visit. It is also the only city I know where smoking in public is an offense.

Chandigarh, Himalayan North, India
Capital of two northern states, Chandigarh is among India's better planned cities... it mixes Punjab's aggressive energy with a more sedate Himalayan calm... the weather is not bad compared to the plains...also a travel base to get to the northern parts of the country...

Chandigarh, Himalayan North, India
chandigarh is a welcome departure from the frenzied pace of most other indian cities. planned by le corbusier, the city is one of his most famous works. it can be monotonous though. 
what makes chandigarh different? think of a grid layout. think of cubism. and populate the image with a prosperous punjabi population. add in some nice parks. and voila! you get the attractive city to live in-adequate entertainment, and great quality of life. but besides the rock garden, there is little to interest you. there are places around, but i havent been there to comment. but it is an ideal base for getaways to himachal pradesh.

Do go to the Nek Chan Rock Garden. It's like being in Alice's Wonderland! Amazing. Sculptures, walls, paths are made of urban waste and it's such a nice way of reccycling. Besides there is no special price for foreigners. Everyone pays 10Rs. However weekends are really crowded!

If you want to get to Chandigarh from Delhi by bus there are plenty of buses (some of them just passing Chandigarh on the way). If you cannot get delux bus, go by ordinary one. It's not so comfortable, but it is cheaper (250 Rs less!) and you don't have to buy ticket in the counter. You will get it on the bus.
