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. Jawahar Lal
Nehru envisaged and Le Corbusier executed.
Serenity and a city are two
diametrically opposite concepts, which however, get belied in
the 'City Beautiful'. Chandigarh is a rare epitome of
modernization co-existing with nature's preservation. 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, spic and span, green city rightly called “ THE
CITY BEAUTIFUL ”.
