He designed a city so perfect, so beautiful, the likes of which can't be found the world over. Not a single aspect of designing has been overlooked here, from the uniformity of the shops to the length and breath of the streets. Houses were placed strategically so that the hot summer sun was blocked out, yet they received adequate sunlight and air.
