More activities; Beautiful environment

Chougan is a awesome place to visit during night, its like India Gate with lot of activities, crowd, food stalls and beautiful environment. After seeing all the temples, churches and lot of other places, in the the night time you must check-out this place. I just kept on walking late night in Chougan because air was so fresh still can't take out this moment and experience from my mind.
