Best Time: Winters most definitely offer the most comfortable temperatures to enjoy Varanasi. Monsoons are also enjoyable as the late day rains offer relief from the heat - they also attract the tourist who likes to visit at "off" times. Varanasi is a little more low key during the monsoons. Best to avoid Summers - scorching. October thru March (Winter) 7°C - 28°C (45°F - 82°F) April thru June (Summer) 21°C - 39°C (70°F - 102°F) July thru September (Monsoons) 24°C - 33°C (75°F - 91°F)
