The best time to visit Udupi is during Winters from October to March because of its unabated heat during summers. The winters are pleasant here, while the temperatures soar up to 40 degrees during the summers. However, evenings are relatively cooler in Udupi. Monsoon, on the other hand, is a suitable time for travelling to Udupi and the nearby places because the temple town has a lush green surrounding after the rains. Udupi is the cultural centre of Karnataka, and there are several festivals and events celebrated there with unmatched pomp. The mutts and temples are patrons of art, hosting many cultural events regularly. Most of these take place in winter. Visiting Udupi during the months when these events are in full swing is ideal because the aesthetic enthusiasm is at its zenith.
