Best Time To Visit Chandigarh

The best season to visit Sirpur is during the winter season from November to March when the temperature is very pleasant and one can actually walk to these excavation sites, which are spread over quite a large area.

Apart from winters, monsoons are also beautiful here. The entire region turns magically green and it's also perhaps the best time for photography.
