Open Hand Monument is a symbolic structure designed by the architect Le Corbusier and located in the Capitol Complex of the Indian city and union territory of Chandigarh. It symbolizes "the hand to give and the hand to take; peace and prosperity, and the unity of mankind". The largest example of Le Corbusier's many Open Hand sculptures, it stands 26 metres high. The metal structure with vanes is 14 metres high, weighs 50 short tons, and was designed to rotate in the wind.

  • Thats place is empty at morning and afternoon. Best time to go evening. And photography allowed there. But there is not good facilitate. So you must take a water bottle. This place best for photography only.
