Chandigarh needs to get more attention for the value it holds. It is a jewel to be experienced especially if you love architecture. I would go back to India to be able to spend more time there. The museum is a great starting point.

Le Corbusier Centre has been set up in Sector-19 in the office complex from where Le Corbusier worked while planning Chandigarh city. The centre has rich collection of old photographs, documents, maps, sketches and models related to his work. Do not forget to buy prints of master's work from the souvenir shop as you leave

The Centre also has a small curio shop from where you... More

Important Historical Centre- but ignored. Le Corbusier deserves a better memorial from the city he designed. Closed on Monday - so plan accordingly.
