What is the best time to visit Allahabad?

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.
