September is the coldest month but this features a balmy temperature range of 71 to 87 degrees, so it hardly qualifies as uncomfortable.

Off season rates are likely to be cheaper, and the city less crowded. Peak season runs from April to October, while the monsoon season is low season in the area.

However, if you take advantage of the beginning and end of off-peak times, and don’t mind a little rain, you may find reasonable weather for sightseeing and much lower rates than during peak times. Festive season times, school vacations and event weekends are likely to cost much more.
