Sukhna is an inseparable part of the city of Chandigarh. Le Corbusier had foreseen that the residents of the city would be drawn it for the ‘care of the body and spirit’. The city planners were deeply attached to the lake.
Sukhna Lake is the venue for many festive celebrations too. From time-to-time other food festivals, featuring specialties from different Indian States, are also held here, along with cultural performances.
