During the month of Ramadan, however, strict rules of Islam are implemented due to which the total footfall falls considerably. Consumption of food has to be done in privacy or indoors and wandering about, shopping and merriment is restrained to a certain level.

The most appropriate time to visit would be between the months of November to April since the weather would be quite pleasant. Be sure to make bookings in advance since this would be the best time of the year to make a perfect getaway to this city.
