    A symphony in concrete...

    There aren't many tourists who choose to visit this city, unless they are a student of modern architects like Le Corbusier. That, or they get a kick out of looking at a scruffy concrete city.

    The 1950's creation of the French architect is perhaps one of the few places on earth that his vision of a futuristic city was realised. It's geometic planning is certainly at odds with the hap-hazard approach to town planning that characterises nearly every other city in the country. This is the Milton Keynes of India, built as a state capital in the main to replace Lahore that became part of Pakistan at Independence.

    From a tourist point of view, the city has a number of interesting parks to visit. They break up the unending squares of concrete and thus 'green' the city. The most interesting (and the most popular tourist draw) is the 'Rock Garden'. This quite surreal place features mini-canyons of shell and stone, scupltures everywhere and more water features than a wet dream about Charlie Dimmock.
