Sukhna Choe

Sukhna Choe, a seasonal rivulet originating from the Shivalik Hills, is a major source of water for the picturesque Sukhna Lake bordering Chandigarh. The Sukhna Lake was created in 1958 by checking the flow of the rivulet.

It however led to a heavy deposit of silt near the lake. Correction measures have led to the stream bypassing the lake completely and instead feeding water indirectly via appropriate filtering methods.

Sukhna Choe currently flows through the eastern side of the city.
