 About Sukhna Lake

Beautifully placed with mighty mountains and reserved forest land in its background Sukhna Lake is neither a natural lake nor it was a part of the original Master Plan of Chandigarh as designed by Le Corbusier. It is the result of great effrots of Chief Architect O.P. Verma who had to put in great efforts to get financial approvarl from already financially tight Government. Approved on the ground of maintaining Water table of the future city which was supposed to be a green city with lots of gardens. Sukhna Lake has emerged as the great contributor to the soul of this city beautiful. This 3 Km long (from left to right) rainfed lake was created in 1958 by damming the Sukhna Choe, a second stream coming down from the Shiwalik hills. It is a hot spot for not only tourists to this city but also a centre of activity for the residents. It is the dream jogging trekking place of nearly every health conscious resident of Chandigarh. It is also a place where families enjoy an evening stroll, painters and photographers mingle with children on roller skates to partake of this extraordinary amenity. Sukhna lake also attracts migratory birds from places as far as Siberia and elsewhere. The environment society of Chandigarh arranges gatherings of children to welcome and see off these visitors. Residents of Chandigarh love their lake, and volunteer in large numbers to de-silt it before the monsoons set in.
