Chandigarh his heralded as the most modern city in India - however it was designed in 1950s by Le Corbusier. However you will find more modern and eye catching architecture in Bhopal, Jabalpur, Raipur, Indore where international styles are thriving under dynamic new architects like Charles Correa, Prashant Diwakriti, Ajay Kataria, Anjum Gupta, Vineet Chadha and Nikhil Sompura embracing a free mix of Roman, English, Gothic, Rajasthani and Mughal styles. A lot has happened since Le Corbusier - look also at the lotus-shaped Bahai temple in New Delhi, designed by Fariburz Sabha in 1980. Don't forget also the modern architecture and infrastructure taking place in Pune.
