Governor's Palace of Chandigarh is a proposed government building in Chandigarh, India. The building was designed by Le Corbusier, with help from Pierre Jeanneret, a Swiss architect and Corbusier's cousin, but it wasn't built.[1][2]

A model of the building was on display at the Le Corbusier Centre, Zürich, Switzerland. Planning and development of the city of Chandigarh is considered a unique experiment of the modern independent India.[3]
