More about Best Time to Travel to Agra

Agra in Winter (Oct - Mar)

These are the best months to visit Agra - the weather is nice and pleasant throughout the day, and you can easily visit all the tourist attractions without any discomfort. However, most of the tourists make a visit during these months, so it can get a little crowded, and you'll need to book hotels in advance.

Agra in Monsoon (Jul - Sep)

The monsoons are not a bad time to visit Agra - temperature is not as high as the summer, and there is not so much rainfall as to spoil your plans. It might be quite humid (and still uncomfotably hot) during the monsoon, but you can still visit the monuments - make sure you carry water around with you as you will sweat a lot.

Agra in Summer (Apr - Jul)

The summer months are extremely hot in Agra - the day temperature can be as high as 45 degrees, making it virtually impossible for you to venture out during the days. Most of the sightseeing in Agra are the monuments, which get really hot in the sun and are uncomfortable to visit. We would recommend you avoid visiting Agra during these months, although if that is the only option, make sure you visit the Taj as early in the morning as possible.
