Ancient history and settlement.
Named after the Goddess Chandi, this beautifully planned city is one of finest examples of urban development. A union territory and state capital to both Punjab and Haryana, Chandigarh has a unique amalgamation of Punjabi and Jat culture. Called the City of Beauty, Chandigarh is internationally ac claimed for its architecture and urban planning.
The near uniform houses and neatly laid out Sectors are some of the finest examples of the work of French architects Le Corbusier and Pierre Jeanneret. Placed on the foothills of the Shivalik Range, Chandigarh serves as a gateway to the gorgeous hill stations of Haryana and even Himachal. But a town is worth a visit for its own fascinating architecture and vibrant local culture.
Aptly called ‘The City Beautiful,’ Chandigarh is a pleasant little city located at the foothills of Shivalik Hills. Designed by Le Corbusier, a Swiss architect, the city has tree-lined roads, avant-garde buildings, and low-rise houses instead of sky-high structures.
