Jaipur is situated at an altitude of 431 meters above sea level. The city experiences a transitional climate between the tropical and the desert climate and hence remains extreme for most of the time of the year. Summers fall between mid-March and June where it attains a maximum temperature of around 45oc. Next comes monsoon, from July till September, but not much of rain falls in the city. Winters in Jaipur are the most pleasant with bright sun and wonderful climate during the day. However, the temperature drops down to 5oc at night time. Winters have a strange spell attracting visitors to take a trip round the city of Rajputs. But, if you are not a big fan of huge rush, book your tickets for the month of April. As the climate tends to get hotter, the population gets thinner. On the other hand, flights usually get delayed during monsoons and landslides are a common site during this time. Therefore, try not to make plans for monsoon.
The city has been inviting people from all parts of the world since its formation in 1727 by Marahaja Jai Singh II. The city remains occupied with colors, fairs and fests almost throughout the year. A few of the famous ones include the Elephant festival, Teej festival, Kite festival, Gangaur festival and Camel festival.
