With the partition of india in 1947, the Punjabhs capital city Lahore went to Pakistan, and then a new capital was built at Chandigarh. This city was christened after Chandi or Durga Devi, is a prosperous and a modern, well planned city. It is actually a Union Territory housing the capitals of both Haryana and the Punjab. When Haryana is able to build its own capital, this city shall he transferred to Punjab.
