The Open Hand Monument
One of the most significant monuments planned by Le Corbusier in Chandigarh is the Open Hand. Rising 85 feet high from a sunken trench, a giant hand in metal sheets is designed to rotate like a weather cock, not to show the incertitude of ideas, but to indicate symbolically the direction of wind. It is also meant to convey a message of peace "open to receive." Amongst the other monumental places to visit in Chandigarh are the Tower of Shadows, Geometric Hill, and Martyr's Memorial.
