The comparatively new city of Chandigarh, in the state of Punjab, is a perfect blend of old and new. Since Chandigarh is situated at the foothills of the Shivalik Hills, the best time to visit Chandigarh is between August and November, when the Fall is in its prime, and the weather is neither too hot nor too cold. There is an overall pleasant weather that is apt for travelling. However, the weather conditions change drastically here, thanks to the proximity of the city to the Himalayas.
