Chandigarh is the expression of modern India. The novelty in architecture coupled with nudity of design makes this city a marvel in itself. This city was envisioned by Late Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru and actualized by Le Corbusier. Here construction is inseparable from greenery and modernization is synonymous with aesthetic sensibility. Chandigarh amalgamates modernity and serenity, and truly reflects an insightful planning. It is rightly christened ‘The City Beautiful’.
It is an urban showpiece—a clean and open garden city with an annual rose festival, a serene lake-side park, a captivating folk-sculpture Rock Garden, and a collection of Le Corbusier buildings that attract architects and tourists from all over the world.
Chandigarh is the capital city of Punjab as well as Haryana, and is a union territory. It is one of the safest cities of the country and the educational hub of north India with more than two lakh students from across the country studying in various educational institutions in and around Chandigarh.
Chandigarh and its surrounding areas, namely Mohali and Panchkula, are on their way to become the north Indian hubs for IT industry with presence of major companies such as Infosys Technologies, Dell, Tech Mahindra, Quark and Wipro.
The City Beautiful also is the home to several regional offices for various multinational banks, retail establishments and real-estate corporations as Chandigarh serves the states of Punjab, Haryana, Himachal Pradesh and Jammu & Kashmir.
