Any where on print or social media chandigarh picture does not go without its high court building. If some visitors has taste in interior architecture & designs of building ,they will surely be happy. Really interesting architecture though you have to know some lawyer or anybody to get entry. Do visit Court no. 1 for great views....

This is one of the archeological landmark of Chandigarh in the Capitol Complex designed by Le Corbusier. Chandigarh Tourism organises guided tour to the place. The passes can be obtained from the tourism department's counter on the right side just as one enters the road to the Capitol Complex.
