  • This was the studio of Le Corbusier and his colleagues when they designed Chandigarh ... Was excited to enter and see many letters written by Le Corbusier to his clients. Today is a foundation that receives especially visits of enthusiasts of architecture or architects, like us, from all over the world .... You can see a large map of the city, as was arranged by the great architect. It was great to see the order, street cleaning and recognize that his vision was successful ... The inhabitants say in fact to live well and never would change the place to live ... It's still a city completely different from all the ones we saw in India. Order, discipline, cleanliness, here, are the basis of everything. Of course we left our signatures on the Museum's Board book ...

  • No air conditioning and it gets very hot during summers, very cute otherwise. It will take you an average of 30-45 mintues to tour this well. You will get very cute souvenirs and some are also pretty cheap to gift people like book marks. There is also a facility for a guided tour but is only available at definite time slots. The person who sells eat outside is mind blowing, I will suggest you try it.
  • If you give a good view to details than this is the place. This place can entice only if you know about architecture or Chandigarh or read about it. There is no one who can explain you. You need to learn yourself. Department could rope in some retired official or students of architecture to make it popular among visitors. It's location is quite approachable.
  • One of the historic place in Chandigarh, in the memory of founder of Chandigarh Le Corbusier. One must visit this place to know how the foundation of Chandigarh is established. How roads, residentials, commercial, tourist places have been designed by the great Architecture of that time. Parking space is available inside the compound.
  • This museum is a great place for you to know more about how Chandigarh was built and designed. With details about Le Corbusier's architectural plans, this is a really interesting museum! You've also got a souvenir shop here, which has loads of merchandize that is also pretty reasonable. Definite visit if you are in the city beautiful.
  • The Pavillon Le Corbusier is a Swiss art museumin Zürich-Seefeld at Zürichhorn dedicated to the work of the Swiss architect Le Corbusier. In 1960 Heidi Weber had the vision to establish a museum designed by Le Corbusier – this building should exhibit his works of art in an ideal environment created by the architect himself in the then Centre Le Corbusier or Heidi Weber Museum. In April 2014 the building and museum went over to the city of Zürich, and was renamed in May 2016.

Where to stay in Chandigarh

The most popular hotels in Chandigarh tend to be located in Sector 22. Chain hotels usually occupy the corners of major streets, and particularly refined options boast views of the city's well-maintained green areas. Budget rooms can be found farther from the center and include a few hostels, guesthouses, and basic hotels in the residential areas. The restaurants and cafes of Sector 17 remain a major draw in the center of town. Located right next to Sector 22, the area also offers some of the most luxurious rooms in town.
