Chandigarh Profile

Chandigarh – a city of Charming Contrast; a pulsating modern town famous for its architecture and landscape. “Chandigarh” derives its name from the temple of “Chandi” located in the vicinity of the site selected for the city. The deity ‘Chandi’, the goddess of power and a fort or ‘garh’ lying beyond the temple gave the city its name.

Chandigarh was constituted a Union Territory of India on 1st November 1966. It is the first planned city of India designed by Le Corbusier, an eminent architect and urban theorist. The city’s pollution-free air, the short distance, the wide tree lined boulevards and avenues, lakes all contribute to making Chandigarh a charming place for residents and visitors.

About Chandigarh

Chandigarh has the distinction of having a unique world-acclaimed Rock Garden constructed by Nek Chand. The diverse population of this territory has made this city a lively and cosmopolitan city. Today this city has become one of the IT destinations in India. The Nehruvian idealism at its core is in stark contrast to the industrial development on the outskirts.
