Chandigarh, the capital of the northern Indian states of Punjab
In the month of February 2016 we planned a 2 day trip to Chandigarh. Yes only 2 days. Short and simple trip. Which give me and my friends a lot of memories. Chandigarh is very beautiful place to visit during February and March month.
We made a list of places to visit in Chandigarh and explored chandigharh in 2 days.
Though first day of trip spend in train itself. But we are never bored when friends are there.
So, here I am sharing some places in Chandigarh you should visit once in your life.
