India - Haryana & Punjab (Chapter)
This is the Haryana & Punjab chapter from Lonely Planet’s India guidebook.
Studded with gleaming gurdwaras – including the famous Golden Temple at Amritsar – Punjab has become an essential stop on the traveller circuit. Haryana is more of a touristic mystery, best known for its modernist capital, Chandigarh, brainchild of Swiss architect Le Corbusier.

- tumble into an alternative reality in Chandigarh’s fascinating Nek Chand Rock Garden
- restaurants & accommodation
Coverage includes: Chandigarh & around, Pinjore (Yadavindra) Gardens, Morni Hills, Haryana, Kurukshetra (Thanesar), Surajkund, Sultanpur Bird Sanctuary, Punjab, Amritsar, Northern Punjab and Eastern Punjab.
