Tourist Places in Chandigarh – Capital Complex

Designed by Le Corbusier, this massive complex in Sector 1 houses the High Court, Secretariat and Vidhan Sabha (Legislative Assembly) and is shared by Punjab and Haryana. The High Court, opened in 1955, is a must-see for its outstanding architecture and requires no permission to visit. Also, you would like to walk round to the Open Hand sculpture, another master-piece of Le Corbusier. While entering the High Court, there is a small museum on the way. It contains curios like the original Le Corbusier sketches and the handcuffs worn by Nathuram Godse, who killed Mahatma

Gandhi. To visit the Vidhan Sabha, a permit is required from the Architecture department in the UT Secretariat.
