However, due to this crowd, the rates of the hotels as well as restaurants are at their lowest and there are good, bargain-able deals available at most of the places. If you must visit Agra during this time, wear light cotton clothes and don’t forget to wear sunglasses and sunscreen. Moreover, always carry a water bottle with you.
The Monsoon Season: August to October is the monsoon season in Agra. Although the rainy season brings with it a new freshness and the temperature lowers down significantly, clogged and slushy roads can dampen some spirit. But it is also one of the best times to see the magnificent Taj Mahal in all its washed glory. Enjoy the famous bazaar shopping, reveal the amazing rickshaw ride and savour the sweet, hot chai from one of the many stalls. To best enjoy the monsoon season, always carry an umbrella or a raincoat and keep your spirits high.
