It is well worth visiting the Architecture Museum (housed in the City Museum) first, before you start exploring the city. The comprehensive and well-displayed exhibition explains the rationale for the building of Chandigarh and how the architects approached their task, as well as showing the layout of the city, housing designs, etc.

For anyone interested in the history of Chandigarh the Architectural Museum is a must, and on this occasion would recommend one of the guides. If you can visit here first before going to other attractions then would help understand the layout of the city, where to go and visit etc. The guide helped us through the exhibits from the initials...
