What is the best time to visit Prayagraj?

The best time to visit Allahabad is during the winter months of October to March when the weather is cool and pleasant for sightseeing. Though Allahabad is accessible throughout the year, summer temperatures can get uncomfortably high, and it is best to avoid this time. During the monsoon, the Ghats may not be accessible, and there are restrictions on people bathing in the river.

Magh Mela typically happens in the month of mid-January - early March (according to Hindu Calendar), and this is the time when thousands of people flock to the town to take a dip in holy Sangam. However, the Maha Kumbh happens only once in 12 years during the same months, and should not be missed.

Allahabad in Winter (October - March)

These are the best months to visit Allahabad. The temperature is pleasant throughout the day, and the flow of water in the rivers is steady and calm which is great for boating or taking a dip in the water. You would also see quite a few migratory birds hovering near the Sangam area during these months. The famous guavas of Allahabad are only available during the winter - these are true to the hype and extremely delicious.

Allahabad in Monsoon (July - September)

Allahabad doesn't see a lot of rain, but the temperature is still quite warm and the flow of the rivers becomes fast and unpredictable. There is also some flooding during some years, and you might not be able to visit the Sangam during this time, making it a little pointless to visit during the rains.

Allahabad in Summer (April - June)

The summer months are extremely hot in Allahabad and should be avoided, if possible. Temperature goes as high as up to 45 degrees Celcius during the day, and since almost all of the sightseeing in Allahabad is outdoors, this wouldn't be a good time to visit at all.
