Belur Weather And Best Time To Visit Belur
The temples and monuments of Belur in Karnataka stand out grand and magnificent, no matter what the season is like. Belur’s weather is moderately a tropical one, so that the seasons are fine almost all year round. But since the monuments are so enchanting that you need to spend more time around them, it asks for the best time. The best season, thus, when you can enjoy the sights of the twin cities of Halebid and Belur is from October to February.
Summer could be hot and humid, with the temperature averaging 29ºC - 39ºC. April is the hottest month of the year. Sightseeing involves a lot of travel by foot and so, if you visit Belur in summer, wear light cottons and wide brimmed hats. Indulge in watersports at the Yagachi Dam in Belur. Load up on plenty of tender coconut water. You'll find stalls selling them by the temple. If you visit Belur in summer, rejoice in the Hoysalamahotsav Dance Festival held in March-April.
The monuments look fresh and dapple clean after the monsoon rains. But moderate to heavy rains might disrupt your travel plans and outdoor activities. Monsoon's the best time to visit the rain-filled Ermayi Waterfalls at Charmadi Ghat in Dharamsthala (92km from Belur) and the Jhari or Buttermilk Falls at Chikmagalur (47 km from Belur).
Temperature in Belur during this season ranges from 22ºC to 26ºC. Carry umbrellas everywhere along with you.
The cool, pleasing winter season is the peak tourist period in Belur. The temperature hovers between 22ºC to 31ºC. December is the coolest month of the year. It's nice to walk around the temple, exclaiming over the architectural wonders and exploring the cool, dark altars when the weather's really good. Pick light woollen clothes to wear and you should be fine for a holiday expedition to Belur.
