Chandigarh is jointly state capital of both Punjab and Haryana but oddly it is part of neither, being a Union Territory administered by India’s federal government.

Its history began with Partition in 1947, when the Punjab’s main capital Lahore fell on the Pakistani side of the border, leaving the Indian state of Punjab without a capital. The controversial European modernist architect Charles-Edouard Jeanneret, alias Le Corbusier was drafted in to design this new and modern city. Begun in 1952, Chandigarh was to be a groundbreaking experiment in town planning. The cleanest and healthiest city in India, it is a vision in concrete.

Today, structurally Chandigarh is a very modern town, with 50 sectors. There are markets and shopping centres and basic utilities like schools in every sector, which limits the total distance of travel for the basic necessities of life.

Chandigarh is best known for its outstanding modern architecture. The Secretariat, High Court and Legislative Assembly Building coupled with various museums and the strange Rock Garden each are fine specimens of modern architecture. Comprising a series of interconnected rocky grottoes, walkways and landscaped waterfalls, the Rock Garden showcases an attraction built entirely from discarded building waste. Further attractions are Sukhna Lake and Asia’s largest rose garden, Zakir Gulab Bag.
