The rains come down in medium to heavy showers in Dwarka, as it is a coastal city. The monsoons also bring city to bloom giving it a beautiful look. Temperatures range between 27- 35 degrees Celsius making it the best season to visit Dwarka.
July or August is also the time for Krishna Janmashtami, or the birthday of Lord Krishna. According to the Hindu calendars, this day falls on the eighth day in the month of Bhadon. Dwarka takes on a different look during this period with thousands of devotees arriving here to celebrate the occasion. After fasting the whole day, when the devotees turn up to pray at the temples at midnight, (the time when Lord Krishna was born), it is the sounds of hymns and chants which rend the air. This is the best time to visit Dwarka, not just for a pilgrim, but also for a tourist as the celebrations bring out a side of Dwarka which can be seen only once a year.
