Chrysanthemums Show, Chandigarh

by on December 28, 2010

ChrysanthemumMy visit to Chandigarh last weekend would leave me with such pleasurable memories was never expected by me. The biggest surprise was my visit to Chrysanthemums Show. The plan was made on the spot and about 7 in the evening we landed up our car outside Terraced Garden of Sector 33, Chandigarh, India.

Chrysanthemums Show is amongst the popular flower shows in India. Truly a delight for eyes, the show presents wide varieties of beautiful flowers.

Spectrum of colours, heart melting fragrances, heavenly ambience all teams up to present an amazing view to viewers. Chandigarh, popularly called “the city beautiful and city of gardens” defines its name very clearly with this amazing Chrysanthemums Show.

Chrysanthemums Show took birth some 10 years ago. With the passing years, the show has gained immense fame and tourist from far-off places gather to witness this unique spectacle of lovely flowers. Today, the show claims itself to be the best flower shows of the country.

It is organised each year by Chandigarh’s Municipal Corporation December month.

Celebrations

It’s not just the locales that participate but also participants from other parts of the country gather here to celebrate and enjoy Chrysanthemums Show. The organisers also conduct various competitions and events to add limelight to the show.

Numerous competitions related to plants take place. Flower arrangement and Gardening are few of them. Gardeners and flora lovers of the city attend this fest to display their flowers.

I and my sister enjoyed the scenic views of red, maroon and yellow chrysanthemums. Almost over100 varieties of Chrysanthemums and 13000 pots with flowers in full bloom were exhibited in this fascinating festival.

The variety displayed was really dense and scattered. Few types of Chrysanthemums that I still remember are pom poms, footballs and spiders and amongst others.

How to reach?

Chandigarh airport is almost 11 kilometres away from City Centre. Almost all the major airlines of the country connect with city with other important cities of the country like Delhi, Mumbai, Amritsar and Jammu.

The city holds pride in its excellent road-network. The city is conveniently situated within motor-able distance from numerous main cities of North India. NH 21 and NH 22 ply through the city. Nearly perfect road conditions and spectacular views on either side of the road presents a pleasurable road journey. Regular Haryana Roadways Volvo buses ply to the city from Delhi and Gurgaon. The bus I opted to travel to the city was a Volvo bus whose timings are 6: 30 in the morning and 10:30 in the night.

The Indian railway serves the city conveniently. Railway Station in Chandigarh is nearly 8 kilometres from the City Centre. Himalayan Queen and Shatabdi Express are two important trains that serve the city on a regular basis.
