The Secretariat
 

The secretariat, which is the headquarters of both Punjab and Haryana, is the largest building in the Capitol Complex. This 8 storeyed linear slab-like elongated building, with concrete walls is intended as a work place for about 4000 people. The 800 foot long facade of the Secretariat are broken in half in a dozen places with projections, recesses, stair towers, changes in pattern and the likes. The centre portion contains the offices of ministers. From the roof top of this building there is a panoramic view of the city and the hills beyond. Constructed during 1953-59, the Secretariat cost around 14million rupees to build.
