    The mysterious number 13 in Chandigarh

    Chandigarh, called the City Beautiful, planned by the great architect Le Cor busier is not having Sector 13 and the sectors are built in such a way that the sum total of opposite sectors is divisible by 13.


    The master plan of the city was prepared by Le Corbusier, transformed from an earlier plan by the American planner Albert Mayor.
