Pinjore Gardens, Chandigarh Reviews
A kind of unique place/garden. Have been there many times since childhood. Lighting in the fountains are great and enjoyable after the sunset. Garden has a relaxing feel to offer along the walking track. Though the outer circle (walking track) is not maintained anymore, which is sad. Good options are available to stay within the property (Offered by Haryana Tourism). Which is good specially for the people who wants to roam around in the garden during late hours or early morning because regular visitors are not present during these hours, making it crowed free. And Deluxe rooms on offer provide good view of the garden too. Overall a must visit place.
Great place for Family and Kids. Spacious Gardens, has a nursery too, multiple food options- street food is available right at the entrance and a restaurant inside the garden area is an option too. Rooms available for Stay. Scenic place and gardens are well maintained- Can be used for School outing; team building exercises. I tried both the street food outside (quite economical) and the restaurant inside the garden area (quite reasonable). Entry to the Garden is through Tickets and invites a fee. Go Karting facility is available through private operator just outside the garden area- does not require any entry fee.
A historic site with enough garden area to relax. Clean and tidy enough to get some fabulous shots. The only thing wrong with this place is the route to reach here. Traffic jams and broken roads. This however has nothing to do with the calmness of this garden.
It was beautiful, the entry fees was a mere 25rs. The bushes are well trimmed and it's well maintained. The park is clean and you have a bar & restaurant inside. There are shops & restaurants outside in which you can buy sweets,namkeen etc.
The location was good however it needs more maintenance. Good for family outing. Waterworks might be good during night but during day there was maintenance so it was not eye catching.
