More about Best Time to Travel to Mayapur

Mayapur in Summer (March - June)

As a tourist or devotee, this is one time you must avoid visiting Mayapur. Unless you wish to spend your entire vacation secluded in your hotel room, summer is certainly not a desirable season for visiting. The temperature is known to soar way past thirty degrees Celsius easily. It will be a test of endurance, both physical and mental, to carry on travelling in this weather. Hence, March to early June is best avoided going to the city of Mayapur. If you do intend to visit the Jagannath Snana Yatra that takes place in June, make sure to keep yourself hydrated and also pack light and airy clothing.

Winter falls in Mayapur between October and February. Although the days start getting colder towards the end of August, the best time to visit Mayapur is during the winter season. By November, the average temperature goes below 29-degree Celsius. November is also the season of festivals as the city temples get decked up with lights to celebrate Diwali. The idols of Lord Ram and Sita are dressed in winsome garbs, and the procession is taken out around the vicinity of the temple. The sounds of Kirtan accompanies the parade as the whole city lights up with fireworks. The festival of Gaura Purnima only adds to the complete experience. Arguably the most significant festival to be celebrated in the city, Gaura Purnima starts in February and lasts till March, spanning almost an entire month. This is a peak season for tourism, so you better book your tickets in advance.
