Other highlights include armies of stone ducks, pig iron dancers and goblins.

Sukhana Lake - Chandigarh » Sukhna lake - The beautiful Sukhna lake is an artificial reservoir. The Sukhna lake was created in 1958 by diverting the Sukhna Choe, a seasonal stream that flows down the Shivalik mountain ranges. The lake has Asia’s longest water channel for rowing and yachting.
