Numerous people make their way to the holy city of Ujjain for various reasons. Some of them are either going there to attend the Kumbh Mela or to just visit the many temples here. Nevertheless, Ujjain is a popular destination for pilgrims and those who love visiting temples. But before visiting the city, it’s a good idea to know what to expect there in terms of weather.
What would be the best time to visit Ujjain? It is also a good idea to know when certain festivals are held so you can attend them too. Here is a season-wise look at the best time to visit Ujjain.
Winter is considered to be the best time to visit Ujjain. The months from October to March are known for their pleasant weather and early morning mist spreads across the city delicately. Visiting temples is also a great experience at this time. The Kumbh Mela which comes here every twelve years takes place during winter.
Rainfall in Ujjain is rather moderate, and temperatures come down from the summer highs to more tolerable levels. From July to September, the monsoon let you enjoy Ujjain on a completely different level. Even taking a dip in the Shipra River becomes a delight for the senses.
Summer is certainly not the best time to visit Ujjain. The sweltering heat makes it difficult to walk around the city, sightseeing and visiting temples. Nights are cooler and it is an ideal time to explore the city in relative comfort. Summer is also the time when most tourists tend to avoid the city and you might enjoy good discounts on travel and accommodation.
