Pawapuri is not only a holy place for Jains, but it is also a part of a heritage space for all Indians and this space includes Rajgir, Gaya and Nalanda besides Pawapuri.

Summer in Pawapuri is pretty much the same as that in most other parts of Bihar. The temperature moves on from moderate to hot and very hot. In the month of May one might face as much as 50°C. While May is generally the hottest month, all throughout summer one faces a period when it is dusty, very dry and scorching hot. Dust storms are fairly common till welcome showers cool the earth in June. It is best to stay away from Pawapuri in the summer.
Monsoons in Pawapuri tend to be strong and sometimes violent too depending upon the direction of the winds which keep changing each season. Pawapuri gets around 186cm of rain annually. The weather changes during monsoon especially after the earth soaks up and cools down the environment. Thereafter, the temperature does come down appreciably. A drop of 10°C is quite usual after the monsoon has set in. However, roads do tend to get flooded after a heavy shower. It is therefore not advisable to visit Pawapuri during the monsoon period.
Winter is a pleasant period in Pawapuri and although the maximum temperature does rise to about 28.6°C during the daytime, the night temperature may drop to even lower than 6°C. This gives you fine days for walking around the various sites during the daytime while the evenings are still not too cold for that shopping you would like to do. Nights are chilly and you will need to pack up in your woollens, huddle under the covers and enjoy your time indoors.
