Le Corbusier, the planner of Chandigarh prescribed the Edict of Chandigarh. Urban planners and health experts have termed the edict as a mandated rule book on the planning of the city that was laid down by Corbusier. He, while planning the city wanted its citizens to become the city’s guardians.

This Edict also sets out certain basic ideas that are related to the city’s planning.
What does the Edict say regarding statues?
This Edict states that the age of statues is no more. It also mentions that no personal statues in the parks of Chandigarh or even the city shall be erected. According to the Edict, Chandigarh has been planned in such a way that it intends to radiate a new sublimated spirit of art.
