Chandigarh – The City Beautiful

The manifestation of a dream actualized by Le Corbusier, Chandigarh lies at the foothills of the Shivalik range of the Himalayas and is a rare epitome of modernization co-existing with nature. The city, apart from being a Union Territory, also serves the capital of two states of India – Punjab and Haryana. With broad, clean, tree-lined roads, modernist architecture, leisurely pace of living, mouth-watering food and nearness to the hills, the city attracts tourists from all over the world.

Chandigarh is a model for urban planners because of its alluring parks, calm lakes, innovative gardens and a world-class cricket ground. It is a rich, prosperous, spic and span, green city - rightly called “The City Beautiful”.

The city has a pre-historic past. It was in the ancient past, a wide lake ringed by a marsh. The fossil remains found at the site indicate a variety of aquatic and amphibian life.

Any tour of "The City Beautiful" needs to begin with boating at the beautiful Sukhna Lake. The other worth-visiting attractions in Chandigarh are the Rock Garden, and the Leisure Valley & Rose Garden.

One of the most famous places to visit in Chandigarh is the Capitol complex, which is also often referred to as Le Corbusier Centre. Earlier used as Le Corbusier's base, this UNESCO World Heritage Site has now been converted into a museum, and tourists are free to visit it. The Capitol is also home to the state's Vidhan Sabha, High Court, and Secretariat.
