Chandigarh – The City Beautiful
One of the youngest cities in India, Chandigarh, was born after independence, fulfilling the requirement for capital for the new Indian Punjab post-independence. Being one of the few cities in India that was drawn on paper before being crafted from the earth, Chandigarh has an architecture that is a world-renowned and unparalleled quality of life. Envisaged by late Pandit Jawahar Lal Nehru and actualized by several Indian architects and town planners, under the architectural guidance of Swiss-architect Le Corbusier, Chandigarh, is a rare epitome of modernization co-existing with nature’s preservation.
