High Court of Punjab and Haryana (Chandigarh, India)

When India and Pakistan became two separate countries, the state of Punjab was split leaving the Indian side with no capital city. Chandigarh was created as a new planned city to fill the gap. The High Court of Punjab and Haryana forms part of the Capitol Complex designed by the Swiss-born French architect Le Corbusier as a key building in the new city. This enormous concrete building was built between 1951 and 1957 and is considered a masterpiece of 1950s architecture. The building is covered by a concrete canopy roof with three 20m high coloured pillars. Inside the building, the courts contain a number of large colourful tapestries, also designed by Le Corbusier. As the building is a functioning court house, visitors are subject to security searches and may need prior approval. Permission to visit the buildings of the Capitol Complex can be gained from the Principal of the Chandigarh Architecture College, the Deputy Director of Tourism, or the Tourist Officer at Chandigarh Tourism.
