A centre of learning for more than 3000 years, Varanasi is associated with spiritualism, mysticism, Sanskrit and yoga, and is a major destination for foreign tourists in India . An early morning cruise on the Ganges is a fascinating experience with the centuries old temples on the banks silhouetted against a crimson sky at dawn and a million reflections on the rippling waters.

Of the 85 temples built by the Chandela kings, only 22 survive.

4 Agra

Agra is home to the world's greatest monument of love and one of the most famous landmarks in India - the Taj Mahal. Though Agra is known globally as the city of the Taj, this royal Mughal city has several other monuments that epitomize the high point of Mughal architecture. Agra was the capital of Mughal India in the 16th and 17th centuries. It was here that the founder of the dynasty, Babar, laid out the first formal Persian garden on the banks of the river Yamuna.

5 Jaipur

Known as the Pink City due to the predominantly pink colour of its buildings, Jaipur is one of the most enticing places to see in India. Every aspect of this majestic city was meticulously planned. The width of the streets and the pavements, the height of the buildings and the division of blocks are all based on ancient geometric harmony and sound environmental considerations. Founded in 1727 by Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh, Jaipur is steeped in colourful and romantic Rajput history. Its traditional bazaars selling brilliantly coloured textiles and an endless array of trinkets form an integral part of the city centre.

6 Udaipur

Set amongst rolling hills speckled with shimmering lakes, Udaipur is considered by many as the most beautiful and the most romantic city in Rajasthan. Founded in 1567 by Maharana Udai Singh, the city is surprisingly quiet and traffic-free. It has the atmosphere of a small town, with winding alleyways and tree-lined streets leading to the impressive City Palace, which overlooks the legendary "floating" Lake Palace.

7 Mumbai

The western state of Maharashtra has its capital in Bombay, India's greatest port, financial hub and the trend-setting converging point of the East-West nexus. Perched on an island in the Arabian Sea and separated from the rest of India by a winding creek, Bombay, now known as Mumbai, is a world unto itself, with a unique intensity that hits you the moment you land. Its culture is contemporary and vibrant and reflects both the affluence and the poverty of the more than 15 million people that inhabit the island. Restaurants, bars, museums and shops are juxtaposed with towering skyscrapers, bustling streets, bright neon lights, and the glamorous film industry of Bollywood.

When Should I go?

The months of September through to March are considered to be favourable months to travel to India. September has the added advantage of being in the “good weather” bracket but also technically falls in the off season in most places, so prices are cheaper for travel in September. The months of October through to February are pleasant in most parts of the country, though you will find the temperatures varying between chilly in the North and warmer in the southern parts of the country.

India’s weather is varied and different parts of the country may get monsoons at different times. May and June are hot months across the country except for the hill stations in the North.

Average temperatures and rainfall
Monsoon Months in India

The country gets monsoons in the months of June and July though along the south western coast, there are monsoons in the period between October to December too.

June and July are monsoon months in Kerala, the showers being heavy at first and then easing off gradually. Whilst these are not the best months for tours, interestingly, this happens to the best time for travellers seeking the therapeutic Ayurveda treatment which is said to be most effective in these months.

Best months for travel to India

The months of October through to March are considered to be the most favourable months to travel to India when the weather is sunny and pleasant.
