India During Monsoons

The Monsoon in India is a spectacle best witnessed in person. It begins during the latter part of June and goes on till late August. The overcast skies, pouring rainfall and gale serve as a respite from the heat and humidity of the previous months. The intensity of the monsoon varies in different parts of the country. Hill stations and port cities generally experience torrential downpour, heavy winds and more. The states and cities located on the plateau and which are in the centre of the country also experience rainfall, but with a lighter intensity and volume. We have compiled a list of places in India with varying monsoon experiences that you can enjoy.


Agra is a historical destination that served as one of the last bastions of the Mughal Empire. There are a variety of monuments such as the Taj Mahal, Shah Jahan Park, Moti Masjid and many other attractions.
