What is the best time to visit Tirupati?

Tirupati is crowded throughout the year; however, the best time to visit Tirupati is from September to February when the climate is relatively balmy with intermittent showers. The summers with its sweltering weather and humidity make Tirupati less ideal to visit. Winter months are ideal for sightseeing and also visiting the shrine, and the weather is pleasant. The town gets crowded by September which is the onset of Brahmotsavam, one of the auspicious festival of Tirupati. For temple hopping, the best season is again winter owing to festivals like Navratri and Dussehra falling in October. Avoid visiting Tirupati during April and May as the temperature is torrid and unbearable.

Monsoon (July - October)

With the arrival of monsoon, the temperature start falling. The months of June, July, August and September bring moderate rainfall. The rush during September is high because of the Brahmotsavan festival celebrated with great pomp. Monsoon is the perfect time to visit the famous Kapila Teertham waterfalls as it looks breathtaking during these months since the waterfall remains more or less empty during summer and late winter season. With the pleasant weather that Tirupati offers compared to other times of the year, this is indeed the best time to make a trip to this temple town.

Summer (March-June)

Summer begins from March and continues up to June. The temperatures soar up to 42 degrees, which is the reason why you must avoid visiting the town during summers. However, the nights are more relaxed. The crowd is also minimal during the summers, which makes it an excellent time to visit the temples and watch the shrines closely. It is also a good time for budget travellers; however, there are no significant events or festivals during this time of the year; hence, it is advisable to travel to Tirupati post monsoon.
