Don't know when to plan your trip to Puri? Well, make sure that you keep in mind the weather and the festivals of the city while chalking out the plan. You can visit Puri anytime of the year, however, there are the most feasible months, when Puri is at its charming best. Here are a tips that can help you decide when to schedule your visit.

  • Summer
    Try to avoid visiting Puri in summers as the weather is hot and humid. The temperature is pretty high, especially during the day. Even though the weather is not conducive, but this does not stop the visitors from visiting this major pilgrimage destination. In fact, Puri experiences a huge inflow of tourist during April and June. Light cottons are recommended for this weather. If you aren't accustomed to hot weather, this time is not suitable for you to visit as the temperature can rise up to 36 degree celsius.

  • Monsoon
    If you don't mind being part of a crowd of thousands of people and are seriously adherent, then come here during June and July when the Rath Yatra takes place. It is the annual Chariot Festival of the Jagannath Temple, during which thousands and thousands of people come to join the sacred and colorful procession. Try to avoid the rainy season (June to September) however, as the southeast monsoon really pours its heart out and may dampen your plans.

  • Winter
    The city has a typical tropical climate and can be best visited during the winter season from the months of October to March. Temperature is low making the sightseeing extremely comfortable. Another high point is the Beach festival which takes place in the month of November. The months from November to February are the appropriate time to visit as the weather is at its pleasant best.
