Chandigarh, India

Latitude and longitude coordinates are: 30.741482, 76.768066.

Chandigarh is a city in the northern region of India which serves as the capital city of two states, the state of Punjab and the state of Haryana. It lies right on the border between the two states but has a special status of the Chandigarh Capital Region. Thus, the city has its own government and literally is not administrated by either of the two states. The city is not too large but has a very special culture, in addition to its very special administrative status. Its total area is close to 44 square miles and it is actually one of the smallest capital cities of all the Indian states. Chandigarh is located 160 miles north from the country's capital city, New Delhi, about 60 miles east of Ludhiana, and about 155 miles east of the city of Lahore in the easternmost part of Pakistan.

The name of the city can be interpreted as the Castle of Chandi, and it is considered to be the first planned city of the region. It is famous for its modern architecture which can be found in the downtown area and in its residential outskirts. The city's elevation is estimated to be exceeding one thousand feet and that is caused by the city's close proximity to the southern ranges of the Himalayas, particularly the Sivalik Range. The region where the city is located is known as the Terai which is actually quite flat. The towns and the small cities located on the outskirts of Chandigarh are called Sahibzada Ajit Singh Nagar, Panchkula, Mullanpur Garibdass, Nayagaon, Zirakpur, and some others. There is a very nice natural preserve, Sukhna Wildlife Sanctuary, located just about 7 miles north east of the downtown of the city.
