Chandigarh’s Amazing Master Plan

French Architect, Le Corbusier, created the Master Plan for this city. It is equivalent to the human body. The Capitol Complex is the ‘Head’ of the city, the City Center is the ‘Heart’, the Leisure Valley and Gardens are the ‘Lungs’, the Cultural and Educational Institutions are the ‘Limbs,’ and the 7 Vs are the city’s ‘Circulatory System’. The 7Vs are the city’s roads that are divided into seven categories.

Do you know that Chandigarh administration has established Le Corbusier Center at the old office of the architect in sector 19. The center exhibits the life and the works of this French architect. It is one of the tourist attractions today.

Chandigarh breathes vibrancy and vivaciousness, tranquillity and titillation, freshness and fantasy. It truly is a traveller’s delight.
