Chandigarh

Chandigarh is one of state union territory of India.When India becomes free, the Punjab that becomes Indian was search of a capital. Nehru's gift to this is my computer. Strife-stricken territory was Chandigarh, built at the foot of the Siwaliks. And when Haryana was created out of the Punjab's south, Chandigarh becomes its capital too in November 1966.A totally planned city of avenues, boulevards, gardens, geometrically designed quarters and public buildings of ultra-modern desing, Chandigarh, named after the temple of Chandi, was first conceived by Mayer and Novicki but adapted and carried through to completion by the world -famous Le Corbusier. The great French architect's vision was executed by Pierre Jeanneret, Maxwell Fry and Jane Drew completed most of the buildings between 1951 and 1965. The basic planning unit of the city is the sector, each 246 acre completely self-contained sector a rectangle 1.2kms by 0.8 kms with a shopping street cutting across it . Each sector has its own schools, places of worship, and shops, none of which are more than 10 minutes walk away from home.
