CHANDIGARH

THE CITY BEAUTIFUL

the city beautiful

“ THE CITY BEAUTIFUL ”

Chandigarh is the best-planned city in

India, with architecture which is world-

renowned, and a quality of life, which is

unparalleled. As the capital of the states

of Punjab and Haryana, and the Union

Territory of Chandigarh it is a prestigious

city. The face of modern India,

Chandigarh, is the manifestation of a

dream that Pt. Jawaharlal Nehru

envisaged and Le Corbusier executed.

Serenity and a city are two diametrically

opposite concepts, which however, get

belied in the 'City Beautiful'. It is here

that the trees and plants are as much a

part of the construction plans as the

buildings and the roads. India’s first

planned city, is a rich, prosperous, green

city rightly called “THE CITY

BEAUTIFUL”.

the architecture

THE ARCHITECTURE

Chandigarh is one of the most significant

urban planning experiments of the 20th

century. It is the only one of the numerous

urban planning schemes of Le Corbusier, the

famous French architect-planner, to have

actually been executed. Le Corbusier summed

up his work on the city in an "edict", a few

points summarized here:

The city of Chandigarh is planned to

human scale. Here the radiance of nature

and heart are within our reach.

This city is composed of sectors. Each

sector is 800 meters by 1,200 meters,

enclosed by roads allocated to fast

mechanized transport and sealed to

direct access from the houses.

The central plaza in Sector 17 was

designed by Le Corbusier as "Pedestrian's

Paradise". No vehicular traffic will be

permitted in the plaza.

No personal statues shall be erected in

the city or parks of Chandigarh. The city

is planned to breathe the new

sublimated spirit of art.

le corbusier centre

LE CORBUSIER CENTRE

The Le Corbusier Centre was set up

on October 6, 2008 on the occasion of

the 121st birth centenary of Le

Corbusier, to commemorate and

preserve the work and legacy of Le

Corbusier with specific reference to the

modern architectural Heritage of

Chandigarh.

The Centre displays and exhibits the life

and works of Le Corbusier, so that

tourists and future generations may be

able to acquaint themselves with the

rich cultural heritage of the city. Le

Corbusier Centre comprises of four

sections:

Museum & display gallery,

Research, publication, archival and

digital library,

capitol complex

CAPITOL COMPLEX

The Capitol Complex is Le

Corbusier’s most spectacular work.

The magnificent edifices, set

against the Shivalik peaks, stand

“as massive concrete sculptures,

representing the monumental

character authority that the

complex represents. It is the seat of

the government of the States of

Punjab and Haryana. It comprises

three epoch-making master-pieces:

the Secretariat, the High Court and

the Legislative Assembly. Separated

by large piazzas, the subtle and

most evocative grouping of these

buildings is of breath-taking

beauty.

And in the centre stands the giant

metallic sculpture of The Open

Hand, the official emblem of

Chandigarh, signifying the city’s

credo of ‘open to give’, ‘open to

receive’.

pinjore garden

PINJORE GARDEN

Pinjore Gardens (also known as Pinjor

Gardens or YadavindraGardens) is

located in Pinjore, Panchkula district in

the Indian state of Haryana. It is an

example of the Mughal Gardens style, and

was built by Patiala Dynasty Rulers.

The garden has been laid in seven terraces

with the main gate of the garden opening

into the highest first terrace which has a

palace built in Rajasthani–Mughal style. It

is called the “Shish Mahal” (palace of

glass), which is adjoined by a romantic

"Hawa Mahal" (airy Palace). The second

terrace with arched doorways has the

"Rang Mahal" (painted palace). The third

terrace has cypress trees and flowerbeds

leading to dense groves of fruit trees. The

next terrace has the "Jal Mahal" (palace of

water) with a square fountain bed and a

platform to relax. Fountains and tree

groves are provided in the next terrace. The

lowermost terrace has an open-air theatre,

which is designed as a disc-like structure.

rock garden chandigarh has the distinction

ROCK GARDEN

Chandigarh has the distinction of

having a unique world acclaimed Rock

Garden. It consist of art object,

fashioned from industrial and urban

waste. It nestles amidst 20acres of

woods in the form of an open air

exhibition hall, theatre trove and a

miniature maze all rolled into one vast

fantasy land of art and landscape. It is

without doubt, a tourist spot that is a

must on the itinerary of visitor to

Chandigarh.

The layout of the garden is based on the

fantasy of a lost kingdom. The moment

one enters the garden, the small

entrance doors which make the head

bow, not only creates an ambience of

royal, but also impart humbleness. One

has to pass through a verity of doorways,

archways, vestibules, streets and lanes

of different scales and dimensions, each

one opening into a new array of display

or courtyards and chambers lending an

air of suspense and curiosity at every

corner, at every turn.

LEISURE VALLEY

city. Le Corbusier retained the eroded

valley of a seasonal rivulet on the original

site of the City and sculptured it into a

Linear park now over 8km long .It

starts from Sector 1 in the north and

leaves Chandigarh at its southern most

edge in sector 53.

the lakewas one of the greatest gifts

from Le Corbusierand the Chief

Engineer P L Verma to the city

of Chandigarh. To preserve its

tranquility Corbusier insisted that it be

forbidden to motor boats and the top of

the dam (promenade) prohibited to

vehicular traffic. The lake is fringed by a
