Sukhna Lake, Chandigarh, India

Sukhna Lake in Chandigarh, India, is a reservoir at the foothills of the Himalayas, the Shivalik hills. This 3 km² rainfed lake was created in 1958 by damming the Sukhna Choe, a seasonal stream coming down from the Shivalik Hills

Fulfilling the leisure objective of Le Corbusier’s masterplan, this landmark artificial lake is a popular rest and recreation stop for Chandigarh families. It has ornamental gardens, a children’s fairground, places to eat and drink, and pedalos for rent. Electric carts (₹10 per person) shuttle passengers between here and Nek Chand Rock Garden.
