Capitol Complex is a breathtaking structure at Sector 1 in Chandigarh that houses the seat of both Punjab and Haryana governments, respectively. With its architectural grandeur that is credited to Le Corbusier, this magnificent building is the perfect reflection of the planned city of Chandigarh.
Within the premises of the complex are three edifices, the Secretariat, the Legislative Assembly and the High Court, which forms the main organs of administration. Though the three imposing structures are out of bounds, tourists can witness them from a distance from the ‘Open Hand’, the official emblem of Chandigarh located in the heart of Capitol Complex.
For a closer look of the premises, tourists are required to seek permission from the Tourist Bureau at Sector 9 or the Tourist Reception Centre at Sector 17 Plaza.
