What is the best time to visit Santiniketan?

Santiniketan, the abode of peace, is best visited during monsoons and winters, i.e., between July and February. Other than the days when there are heavy rains, the climate remains overcast with light showers, making for a decent time to explore the rich culture of West Bengal. The climate remains comfortably cool throughout the day allowing tourists to explore every aspect of the beautiful abode whether it is set indoors or outdoors. Some may even choose to visit during the transitional season of spring which occurs in March. The weather is warmer compared to the winter season, but pleasant and comfortable. Summertime, between April and June, is not recommended to tourists because of the high-temperature the region experiences, making it the most inconvenient time of the year.
