  • Upon India’s independence, Jawaharlal Nehru, the nation’s first Prime Minister, dreamed of “a new town, symbolic of the freedom of India …. an expression of the nation’s faith in the future.” Chandigarh, meaning “fortress of Chandi,” the Indian goddess of power, is the incarnation of Nehru’s vision. The construction of this municipality, the brainchild of renowned modernist architect Le Corbusier, born of his utopian dream of an avant-garde city, symbolized the determination of India to move forward into the contemporary world.
