Somnath in Monsoon (July - September)

If summers in Somnath are sweltering and hot, monsoons are another matter entirely. The monsoon months of July to September in Somnath receive a heavy dose of rainfall. While this is a normal phenomenon for many places across the country, Somnath is a special exception because the monsoons in the place are almost vicious. The town is often faced with harsh winds that may even turn into cyclones during some particularly bad days. Humidity also runs high during the monsoon season which means that individuals visiting Somnath during this time are in for a particularly uncomfortable visit.

Somnath in Summer (March - June)

Summers in Somnath last from March to June. The summers, as well as the monsoons in Somnath, are less than ideal and aside from the throngs of pilgrims who visit in droves throughout the year, the place is virtually empty. The temperatures during these months run high and range from 24 degree Celsius to 42 degree Celsius. These temperatures are synonymous to those of the summers in other parts of Gujarat and are indeed extremely hot. So unbearable are these months that they hinder sightseeing activities and make individuals not want to leave the comfort of their accommodations.
