Amritsar witnesses extreme temperature on both ends, i.e scorching heat in summers and bone freezing chills in winters. Whilst on a trip to Amritsar weather is a crucial factor to keep in mind, so let us discuss when you can enjoy being in Amritsar to the fullest.

  • During Summers i.e between April and June the temperature of the city may rise as high as 49 degree C. Due to this harsh weather, these months are not quite apt for visiting Amritsar.
  • Monsoons start from July and stays till October. During these months the city features a comparatively pleasant temperature that varies from 11 to 28 degree C. It is followed by moderate rainfall that offers peace after the harsh heat of summers.
  • The chilly Winters enter in November and remain till March. During the peak winters, from December end till February first week, the temperature may fall below the freezing point. The general temperature may vary from -4 degree C to 18 degree C.

So, keeping in mind the extreme weather of the city, the best time to visit Amritsar would be from October to March. In these months the city features a moderate and pleasant temperature which is good for sightseeing. You can also enjoy the Ram Tirath fair between these months, if you happen to drop in two weeks after Diwali.
