The Palace of Assembly was designed by the renowned French architect Le Corbusier as a Legislative Assembly, constituting The Capitol Complex comprising of three State of Art buildings, The Legislative Assembly, The Secretariat and The high Court. It is one of the major masterpieces in Chandigarh's archtitectural history. Le Corbusier was appointed by our then Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru to build the new city of Chandigarh. The main idea behind creating this brilliant Work of Art was to signify the nation's faith in the future.
The office supplies from the assembly were sent for an auction in London, but were condemned unfit for use.
The Palace of Assembly still stands tall with all its grandeur and veneration, witnessining the development this city has gone through till date.
