Chidambram in Winter (November - March)

Winter overlaps with the monsoon in this region and lasts from November to March. January and February are the driest months and so are ideal for tourism because of the low temperature and no rainfall. The temperature ranges between 21 and 28 degrees Celsius and is very pleasant. However, since this season is very popular with all tourists, it is advisable to book all travel and living arrangements in advance.
