About Chandigarh

The prime example of planned architecture, Chandigarh is known as India’s first planned city. It is bordered by Punjab in the north, west and south and by Haryana in the east. A union territory, Chandigarh serves as a capital to both its neighbouring states of Punjab and Haryana, however, it is not governed by them.

A perfect blend of modernity and natural beauty, Chandigarh consists of 47 self-contained sectors and was designed by the ace architect Le Corbusier. Chandigarh is located near the foothills of the Shivalik range of the Himalayas in northwest India. Popular for its luscious greenery, delectable North Indian cuisine, markets selling traditional items, this town is perfect for a peaceful getaway.

Though the weather remains pleasant throughout the year, the best time to visit Chandigarh is between August and November when it is neither too hot nor too cold.
