The Japanese Garden Sightseeing at The City Beautiful

The City Beautiful Chandigarh is known for its green surroundings spread all over. There are several parks and gardens that not only add to the beauty of the city, but are quite happening places as various activities/events are conducted there every now n then.

Few months back before this lockdown happened, my sister had visited my place with her family and we thought of finding a vibrantly colorful place to let our kids enjoy their day in some open space.  

While looking for a family picnic spot, we discovered about a relatively new addition to city's popular gardens i.e. the Japanese Garden and we decided to explore the place.

So here is how this peaceful spot looks like-

Japanese Garden is a well-maintained park located in Sector 31, Chandigarh. The layout and design of the garden is inspired from Japanese architecture, as you must have expected. The landscape layout of the garden nicely showcases the Japanese culture, art and aesthetics. 

As we entered the garden, the kids really enjoyed the calm beauty of the garden where the walking paths take you between the plants and small ponds. Imagine the delight of kids who were literally mesmerized by the scenic view of those huge sculptures, pond-like water bodies, wooden walkways, pagoda towers, waterfalls and beautiful Japanese paintings. My son expressed his special interest in enquiring about different types of plants, trees and flower-arrangements exhibited there. 

After we were back home, the kids were bubbling with energy and discussing everything they loved at the park. It made me realize that instead of planning a kids' day out for a movie or gaming parlour, we should expose them to unexplored things where some sort of learning is also involved. Because this is when their natural curiosity is sparked. They learn to appreciate the complexity of nature that we usually take for granted. In short, such experiences extend learning beyond the walls of classrooms and is an attestation of the fact that there is life outside of technology.

For those who might be interested to visit:

Location: Sector 31, Chandigarh
Ticket Price: Free Entry 
Visiting Hours : 7:30 AM - 7:00 PM All days of the week
