Wondering when to visit this sacred city? Well, the blessings of Lord Krishna are showered on His devotees irrespective of the seasons. In every month, pilgrims throng to the temple on special occasions like Ekadasi. Yet, if you wish to have an overview what the general weather conditions here are like all through the year, here is one.

  • Summer

    The months of March, April, May and June are hot and dry, with the maximum temperature of 36 degrees Celsius and minimum temperature of 27 degrees Celsius. Those not used to extreme heat may find the season quite uninviting.
  • Monsoon

    The months between June to September are the months of monsoon season. The town experiences heavy rains usually. The mercury levels come down and the population gets a respite from the heat.
    You may consider carrying umbrellas and raincoats along if you plan to visit Guruvayur during this season.
  • Winter

    The months between December to February are a little chilly, though overall winter is the most pleasant season in the town of Guruvayur. The temperature ranges between 20 degrees Celsius to 30 degrees Celsius.
    It is quite sufficient that you carry light woollens along, as the chill is not likely to be uncomfortable.

Evidently, the winter months are most preferred by tourists, given the favourable weather conditions. The time is ideal for both temple visits and for other sightseeing activities. The months between August to November are also preferred by many travellers as these are the months of festivities.
We are sure you will make a judicious pick on the season you will prefer to pay your homage to this religious destination.
