Located near the serene foothills of the Shivalik range of The Himalayas, Chandigarh, meaning “the fort of goddess Chandi” is derived from Chandi Mandir, an ancient temple devoted to the Hindu goddess Chandi situated nearby. In 1950, India’s Prime Minister Jawharlal Nehru invited the famous Swiss – French architect Le Corbusier to design this city that he envisioned would represent Modern India. Chandigarh is considered the first planned city of India. Known for its urban architecture, beautiful lakes, magnificent buildings, tree line boulevards and beautiful parks, Chandigarh reflects Le Corbusier style of modern architecture and urban design and his principles of light, space and greenery. Chandigarh hosts the largest of Le Corbusier’s many Open Hand sculptures, standing 26 metres high. The Open Hand is a recurring motif in Le Corbusier’s architecture, a sign for him of peace and reconciliation. Colourful and vibrant, the people of Chandigarh tell their story and celebrate their culture through their attire – the pagdi-turban and phulkari dupattas, their traditions and festivals and their dance – the bhangra.
