Varanasi Tour

Varanasi is the symbol of undying faith to millions of devotees who throng the Ghats and temples of this holy city. The significance of Varanasi/ Kashi can be gauged from the fact that Hindus from different parts of India wish to spend their last days in the eternal city to attain liberation. This very facet of the holy city pulls curious westerners as well as diehard devotees to her fold.

The Legacy of the Varanasi

Varanasi was a prosperous trade center when Buddha came to Sarnath, about 10 kilometers away, to preach his first sermon in 500 BC. The famous American novelist Mark Twain once wrote, "Benaras is older than history, older than tradition, older even than legend and looks twice as old as all of them put together.

"The Ghats of Varanasi


Varanasi's major tourist attraction are the long stretch of ghats, which line the west bank of the Ganges. Ghats are the steps which lead down to the rive
r. There are around ghats in Varanasi, each with its own significance. Most Indians believe that anyone dying on the banks of the river, in Varanasi, attains instant 'moksha' or enlightenment.
