This place is one of the best to visit, if you are a lover of architecture. I must say Le Corbusier was a talented perosn and his ideas and inception in planning the architecture of Chandigarh was truly amazing

There are not many instances in the 20th century of a country creating a new planned capital city. Plus this project had the added challenge of serving as capital for 2 states. The displays in this museum show the political and other difficulties of doing so in a developing country. The museum is in the original buildings where the Chandigarh... 更多
The whole very modest building, very light a structure, is stuffed with photos and documents worth a look and some readings, reinforcing admiration for Le Corbusier and his team work in such conditions.
The Centre displays and exhibits the life and works of Le Corbusier, so that tourists and future generations may be able to acquaint themselves with the rich cultural heritage of the city. The main aim of the Centre would be preservation, interpretation, research, display of the works and legacy of Le Corbusier.
A decent collection of art works - sculptures, paintings etc. Learnt about a new thing here during this visit - "Patua Scroll painting" - Don't miss it. The Ajant fresco copies are also very good. In addition to these, there are a number of other examples of various painting styles - Rajasthani styles from Mewar, marwar etc, Mughal miniature art,... 更多

Drove pas it a couple of times, as we expected an imposing building. This museum houses a lot of letters, original documents, furniture and some of Corbusie's paintings (not original). Very good if you want to know about the making of Chandigarh
We really enjoyed seeing the spaces in which Le Corbusier and others worked, sketched, planned, and discussed the planning of Chandigarh. There are some original pieces of furniture (stools, drawing tables, chairs), as well as archival materials displayed on the walls. Although we were inspired by our visit, these documents and photographs deserve proper conservation and preservation for future generations.
