Title: Chandigarh to Delhi Taxi Service

  • 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. Jawaharlal Nehru envisaged and Le Corbusier
  • Serenity and a city are two diametrically
    opposite concepts, which however, get belied in
    the 'City Beautiful'. It is here that the trees
    and plants are as much a part of the construction
    plans as the buildings and the roads. Indias
    first planned city, is a rich, prosperous, green
    city rightly called THE CITY BEAUTIFUL.

  • Chandigarh is one of the most significant urban
    planning experiments of the 20th century. It is
    the only one of the numerous urban planning
    schemes of Le Corbusier, the famous French
    architect-planner, to have actually been
    executed. Le Corbusier summed up his work on the
    city in an "edict", a few points summarized here
  • The city of Chandigarh is planned to human scale.
    Here the radiance of nature and heart are within
    our reach.
  • This city is composed of sectors. Each sector is
    800 meters by 1,200 meters, enclosed by roads
    allocated to fast mechanized transport and sealed
    to direct access from the houses.
  • The central plaza in Sector 17 was designed by Le
    Corbusier as "Pedestrian's Paradise". No
    vehicular traffic will be permitted in the plaza.
  • No personal statues shall be erected in the city
    or parks of Chandigarh. The city is planned to
    breathe the new sublimated spirit of art.

  • The Le Corbusier Centre was set up on October
    6,  2008 on the occasion of the 121st birth
    centenary  of  Le Corbusier, to commemorate and
    preserve the work and legacy of Le Corbusier with
    specific reference to the modern architectural
    Heritage of Chandigarh.
  • The Centre displays and exhibits the life and
    works of Le Corbusier, so that tourists and
    future generations may be able to acquaint
    themselves with the rich cultural heritage of the
    city. Le Corbusier Centre comprises of four
  • 1.      Museum display gallery,
  • 2.      Research, publication, archival and
    digital library,
  • 3.      Administration and
  • 4.      Souvenir Shop.

  • The Capitol Complex is Le Corbusiers most
    spectacular work. The magnificent edifices, set
    against the Shivalik peaks, stand as massive
    concrete sculptures, representing the monumental
    character authority that the complex represents.
    It is the seat of the government of the States of
    Punjab and Haryana. It comprises three
    epoch-making master-pieces the Secretariat, the
    High Court and the Legislative Assembly.
    Separated by large piazzas, the subtle and most
    evocative grouping of these buildings is of
    breath-taking beauty.
  • And in the centre stands the giant metallic
    sculpture of The Open Hand, the official emblem
    of Chandigarh, signifying the citys credo of
    open to give, open to receive.

  • Pinjore Gardens (also known as Pinjor
    Gardens or Yadavindra Gardens) is located
    in Pinjore, Panchkula district in
    the Indian state of Haryana. It is an example of
    the Mughal Gardens style, and was built by
    Patiala Dynasty Rulers.
  •  The garden has been laid in seven terraces with
    the main gate of the garden opening into the
    highest first terrace which has a palace built in
    RajasthaniMughal style. It is called the Shish
    Mahal (palace of glass), which is adjoined by a
    romantic "Hawa Mahal" (airy Palace). The second
    terrace with arched doorways has the "Rang Mahal"
    (painted palace). The third terrace has cypress
    trees and flowerbeds leading to dense groves of
    fruit trees. The next terrace has the "Jal Mahal"
    (palace of water) with a square fountain bed and
    a platform to relax. Fountains and tree groves
    are provided in the next terrace. The lowermost
    terrace has an open-air theatre, which is
    designed as a disc-like structure.

  • Chandigarh has the distinction of having a unique
    world acclaimed Rock Garden. It consist of art
    object, fashioned from industrial and urban
    waste. It nestles amidst 20acres of woods in the
    form of an open air exhibition hall, theatre
    trove and a miniature maze all rolled into one
    vast fantasy land of art and landscape. It is
    without doubt, a tourist spot that is a must on
    the itinerary of visitor to Chandigarh.
  • The layout of the garden is based on the fantasy
    of a lost kingdom. The moment one enters the
    garden, the small entrance doors which make the
    head bow, not only creates an ambience of royal,
    but also impart humbleness. One has to pass
    through a verity of doorways, archways,
    vestibules, streets and lanes of different scales
    and dimensions, each one opening into a new array
    of display or courtyards and chambers lending an
    air of suspense and curiosity at every corner, at
    every turn.

celebrations and many other events. It is indeed
a beautiful and a pleasant place to visit.
  • A continuum of various theme gardens to take care
    of the body and spirit of the city. Le Corbusier

    it into a Linear park now over 8km long .It
    starts from Sector 1 in the north and leaves
    Chandigarh at its southern most edge in sector

Sukhna Lake is an artificial lake at the
foothills of the Himalayas, the Shivalik Hills.
This 3 km² rain fed lake was created in 1958 by
damming the Sukhna Choe, a seasonal stream coming
down from the Shivalik Hills. The creation of
the lake was one of the greatest gifts from Le
Corbusier and the Chief Engineer P L Verma to the
city of Chandigarh. To preserve its tranquility
Corbusier insisted that it be forbidden to motor
boats and the top of the dam (promenade)
prohibited to vehicular traffic. The lake is
fringed by a golf course to the south, and Nek
