Mango Belt

The Mango Belt is a long chain of mango trees planted on either side of the Purv Marg of Chandigarh. This belt separates the industrial area from the residential area starting from the Transport Area to Sector 47.

Covering about 4 km there are about 12 rows of mango of different varieties of dusheri, langra and chausa. About 5000 mango trees are planted here.

The Mango Belt serves a complete tree buffer to protect the residential areas from the pollutants emanating from the factories and the heavy traffic moving along the Purv Marg.
