Chandigarh is a city and a union territory in India that serves as the capital for both neighbouring states Haryana and Punjab.
The master plan of Chandigarh city was prepared by Swiss-French architect Le Corbusier and was transformed from earlier plans created by the Polish architect Maciej Nowicki and the American planner Albert Mayer.
Some of Le Corbusier’s most impressive architectural accomplishments from Chandigargh can be found in the Punjab and Haryana High Court complex. The court building is known as the Palace of Justice.
Visits to the complex are possible via prior arrangement.
An image of Le Corbusier’s huge ‘Open Hand’ monument sculpture situated within the court complex can be found in our Architecture & Interiors gallery.
