Best Time To Visit Guruvayoor Temple
The temple can be visited any time of the year. Autumn and Winters (October-February) are the best seasons to enjoy a trip to Guruvayoor. It might be a good idea to visit Guruvayoor during the annual Guruvayoor festival which typically happens in the month of February-March. But, if you want to avoid the crowd, avoid visiting when the schools in Kerala are closed for a vacation. The months of April and May, when the schools are closed for summer vacation and September when the schools are closed for the festival, Onam are the times when a large number of people visit Guruvayoor. Summers (March to May) are quite hot and dry and it might be a little difficult to roam around. Monsoons are pleasant, however, frequent rains might hamper your travel plans.
Weather in Guruvayur
Guruvayur in Winter (October-February)
Kerala doesn’t experience severe winters. The climate will be pleasant but not cold. This makes October to February the best to visit Guruvayur.
Guruvayur in Summer (March-May)
During the summer vacations of the schools in Kerala which is from April until the end of May for most of the schools, the Guruvayur Temple is very crowded. It’s the peak season and booking hotels also become difficult and costly during this time.
Guruvayur in Monsoon (June – September)
Onam festival typically falls in September and this period sees a lot of people visiting the temple. Kerala experiences heavy monsoon and the weather becomes pleasant. Though this could impact your overall itinerary of your trip, but this won’t affect your visit to the temple as the premises are well sheltered.
