Blessed with a rich terrain, Chandigarh is considered one of the best examples of urban planning. Carrying a heavy influence and inspiration for architects, designers, and urban planners, the architects in Chandigarh are contributing to the strong foundation laid by the French master architect, Le Corbusier, while incorporating their unique Indian touch and staying true to their roots.
