Answer
The place that receives the most rainfall in the world is an Indian village called Mawsynram which is located in the Indian state of Meghalaya, India. This village receives an average of 467 inches of rain per year. The amount of rain is high in this region because the Himalayan mountains block the movement of rain clouds northward into Tibet. 

Most of the rain falls between June and September, during the monsoon season.
