Chandigarh is a city and union territory that serves as the capital of two states, Haryana and Punjab. The name Chandigarh translates as "The Fort of Chandi".

The city of Chandigarh was the first planned city in India post independence in 1947 and is known internationally for its architecture and urban design.
