The architecture of the capitol complex is just mesmerizing along with the sideways water on it's boundary side. It add a mark to the beauty of the planned city.

Chandigarh is an architectural delight and perfect destination for the students of architecture, structural designing, graphic artists, and for that matter, all those who love aeesthetics. Chandigarh's Capitol Complex is where Le Corbusier started imagining the new post-India city on a raw land in the foothills of Shivalik, which is a part of the Himalayan range. Recently Chandigarh Tourism has... More

Nothing much to see around, except one monument in the shape of a palm located at an isolated location.

Architecturally wonderful city with big bold magnificent buildings, well if this is the best Le Corbusier could do then I would not have hired him to design my garden shed. The buildings are drab and uninspiring and should have been demolished long ago. Don’t waste valuable holiday time.

We were told that you had to go to the tourist office to get a ticket. This has changed, you can get the passes from the office at the Capitol complex, with a passport and a lot of patience to withstand Indian bureaucracy.
