What is the best time to visit Jaipur?

November to March is the best time to visit Jaipur and other parts of Rajasthan as the weather ranges between 8-degree Celcius during nights to 32-degree Celcius in the day. Summers are extremely hot, and sightseeing isn't a very joyful experience. Monsoons, on the other hand, are quite hot and humid which isn't an ideal time to visit too. January is an excellent time to visit Jaipur because of the Kite Festival and also the Jaipur Literature Festival that's held around this time. Sometime in the month of March, Jaipur witnesses the Elephant festival, just a day before Holi.
