Leave Amritsar for Chandighar : Prior to the partition of India, Lahore was the capital city of undivided Punjab. But, after the partition, when Lahore went to Pakistan, India was left without any capital. Also, it led to the migration of people of west Punjab to the eastern towns within India. These two factors gave rise to the need to choose a site in the foothills of Shivalik range that would serve as the capital of Punjab. The city got its name from Chandi, the Goddess of power and Garh meaning fortress.

The river Ganges tumbles down to the northern plains from the hills and the sight is extremely reflective and attracts millions of devotee from all over the world. The main festival of Hardwar is Baisakhi, kanwar mela, somvati amavasya and kartik purnima. The arrival of the festivals is according to the arrival of the months they fall in a year. For example Baisakhi falls in April, kanwar mela is in the first week of July, somvati amavasya is just after the kanwar mela and is as big as the kanwar mela, and kartik purnima comes after fifteen days from the night of Diwali. There are three main transportations which the individuals can board for reaching Hardwar. These are via plane, via train and via bus.
