Ayodhya Weather And Best Time To Visit Ayodhya
The ancient city of Ayodhya is set on the banks of River Sarayu and is said to be almost 9000 years old. The city is the birthplace of Lord Ram and is considered very religious. Due to the significant relation with Lord Ram, many devotees flock every year to worship and offer their prayers. The weather in Ayodhya is like any other city in Uttar Pradesh; hot in the summers and cold in the winters. Monsoons are moderate with a decent amount of rainfall. Not sure when to visit the city? Below are descriptions of the seasons and the best time to visit Ayodhya.
Summers in Ayodhya last from April to June with May and June being the hottest months in the city. Temperatures during this time are in the range of 43°C in the morning/afternoons to 32°C in the night time. The heat might discourage you to go out of your hotel room, but you can always wear light colored, thin clothes to save yourself from the scorching heat. This isn’t the best time to visit Ayodhya due to the hot and humid climate. Yet, Ram Navmi, the birthday of Lord Ram falls in one of the March-April months, bringing large crowds in.
Monsoons in Ayodhya arrive mid July, which is a little later than the other parts of India. This season that stretches from July to September sees temperatures ranging from 32°C in the day to 22°C by night. The climate is pleasant with cold winds and a decent amount of rainfall. The monsoons are a recommended time to visit Ayodhya as the climate is pretty amazing during that time, if you are okay with a bit of rain. Although humidity still persists, it is still very pleasant during monsoons and is a great time to go sightseeing, trying street food and enjoying the wet vibes of the holy city.
The winter season that starts in October and lasts until March is the best time to visit Ayodhya. Temperatures during this season range from 20°C in the day to 5°C during the night. During January to March, the peak months of winter, it may get colder than usual and one must carry appropriate warm clothing. The climate is perfect to stroll around and go sightseeing in the city; since there is not much heat, you don’t feel tired from the sun and can spend more time seeing things around and enjoying the city for what it is.
