  • Very nice to visit, but since it is part of the capital complex it will require security screening, a guide, and a police escort. Worth seeing though.  more »
  • This monument is very emblematic of Chandigarh Look at both sides at the monument and try to figure out all the combined meanings. Definitivily a must see  more »
  • You cannot visit Chandigarh without seeing this symbol of the city. Make sure you see it from both sides. It is beautiful and full of meaning.  more »

  • A history to preserve and be proud of! Le Corbusier at his best as he designed not just the capitol complex of the new city of Chandigarh but also the whole city itself in the get days of modern architecture. India embraced it with open arms and displayed to the world at large that we are a progressive and modern thinking nation way back in 1950. Pt. Nehru was instrumental in getting the great master to do this in the twilight of his career.
  • The space is well maintained and is fit for the general public. A great attraction for kids due to its symbolic picture.
  • The symbolic monument represent the architecture​ of Chandigarh. Made by architect Le carbusie. The place is so peaceful and it's environment is full of marvellous examples of architecture. Worth a Visit
  • The 50 ton hand rotates in cool breeze and greenery around. A very calm and quiet place with lots of fresh air.
  • An amazing place to hold open-air events. Attended Diwali chapter of Kavitactic here, and the place was lit up with candles. Also the lights on the distorted hand seems good during evening time. Greenery all around adds up to the calm of the place..!!

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.
